FREEZING COLD: “Stuck on Hold” b/w “Drawn to Scale”: 7”EP

Jan 05, 2022

Has Salinas Records ever put out a disappointment? Not for me at least. Your mileage may vary, but I feel a quick emotional connection to nearly all the punk / indie rock they release. And here we are with Freezing Cold from the Bronx. The wax is single-sided lathe cut vinyl, which I usually don’t care for. But that’s because I had a shitty record player for a long time and lathe cut records tend to skip on those. Thanks to pandemic stimmys, my setup is pretty killer now and this record sounds so great. Though they only have two tracks on this release, this trio packs in bright and beautiful guitar leads blanketed by harmonizing vocals that quickly become ear worms. What I’m saying, basically, is stay close to your record player ’cus you’re gonna want to start it over before the needle catches the run off. –Kayla Greet (Salinas)
