MISTONS: Extended Play: 12: EP

Jan 24, 2024

A solid, no-second-wasted EP’s worth of Portland punk that manages to recall that town’s earliest days—they’d’ve easily fit on a bill with Neo Boys, Styphnoids, or Sado-Nation—without sounding dated. The four originals here are stripped down to their garagey essence, yet maintain an impressive infectiousness, and performed with an immediacy that gives ’em some extra heft. The closer, a cover of the Wipers’ “Wait a Minute,” seems almost a foolhardy idea, given the reverence that band receives, but they easily pull it off with aplomb. –Jimmy Alvarado (Nadine, nadinerecords.bandcamp.com)
