MORAL PANIC: Self-titled: LP

Let this stand as a testament to those who might’ve thought their corker of a debut was a fluke: it’s wasn’t. Ten more tracks of high-octane punk with lineage hearkening back both to Midwest hardcore and L.A.-via-Arizona legends The Consumers, all saturated in pummel and wail, grime and groove. Nineteen minutes later you’re left dazed ‘n’ wondering just what ran you over and hoping it’ll pass this way again to do the same. –Jimmy Alvarado (Alien Snatch)
