KRIMEWATCH: “Machismo” b/w “New York Nightmare”: Flexi

Slays. Krimewatch offers up a limited yellow flexi—with surprisingly good sound quality—which doesn’t disappoint. Both songs total just barely over the three-minute mark. Get in, get it done, leave them wanting more. “Machismo” offers up primal bass angst chug with releases into explosive hardcore chaos; the vocals are forcefully and succulently shouted. “New York Nightmare” throbs with a pit-inducing mid-tempo pulse that is sonically sparse yet powerful. Stylistically, they are in the vein of Cro-Mags, but better. –Camylle Reynolds (Boss Tuneage)
