MINDS-R-CONTROLLED: Life Time EP: CS

This Australian band brings four tracks of progressive, gruff punk reminiscent of Jake Levee projects Forth Rotor and Canadian Rifle. Minds-R-Controlled own up to that well-tread Pegboy/D4 sound, but swirl in other flavors from less-expected sources like The Minutemen and Fugazi. It’s a sound that subtly weaves its influences into the larger picture creating a sound that’s big and cohesive. Tracks repeat on both sides to ensure many future flippings. –Daryl (Self-released, minds-r-controlled.com / Step Change)
