NEGATIVE SEX / HATE RECORDER: Negative Sex Hate Recorder: Split 7”

This release is only two tracks. Negative Sex brings an interesting post-punk sound to the table, though the vocals throw me off a bit. Hate Recorder’s contribution is very similar, where the nice instrumental work on the record is overshadowed by unpleasant vocal delivery. The solo on their track is pretty gripping, even if its performance isn’t stellar. This release is generally fine, and should be interesting enough to punk and post-punk fans looking for intriguing instrumentals. –Anna Farr (Humaniterrorist, [email protected], humaniterrorist.tumblr.com)
