NAG: Dead Deer: LP

Panicked, doomed punk bashing: two parts Blood Visions-era Jay Reatard and one part anthemic early-’80s California punk. Thirteen songs from this Atlanta band, only one of which cracks two minutes. If giant cockroaches with laser eyes were burning down my city, I’d throw this on before grabbing my bug-out bag and busting out. –Chris Terry (Die Slaughterhaus, dieslaughterhausrecords.com)
