LEISURE WORLD: Demo: CS

Look, I am into basically any heavy record that starts with screeching, but there is something really special about this one. Leisure World is like a punker Pissed Jeans that did their homework in school instead of just smoking pot all day. Creative guitar and bass interplay mixed with heavy and smart drum parts make this exciting to listen to, and those classic pissed punk screams don’t hurt either. Cool cover artwork by DIY comic book artist Abraham Diaz from Mexico City. Probably the most nerdy and aggro shit coming out of Orange County right now, also the only all-dude band on full rotation in my house this summer. –Candace Hansen (Self-released, leisure-world.bandcamp.com)
