GIGLINGER: Money, Power and Corruption/Pay No More: 10” EP

Aug 01, 2019

It’s been fuggin’ ages since I’ve come across anything by these cats and it appears that—in addition to their stubborn desire to remain a mystery (what little info that can be gleaned from the internet points to Finland, and that’s pretty much it)—they’re still cranking out some swell tuneage. A double-EP this time ’round, one on each side. Hardcore is definitely an arrow in their quiver, used not to ratchet tempos, but rather to add noise and immediacy to what is probably best described as punk with some industrial undertones. The songs are infectious without being saccharine, anthemic without being blustery. Good to hear they’re still stomping terra in fine fashion. –Jimmy Alvarado (No address listed)
