NEGATIVE SEX: “Rats for Lost” b/w “White Noise/Brain Fatigue”: 7”

Reno’s Negative Sex makes dystopian hardcore post-punk with driving basslines and ripping guitars that sonically mimic the bleak content of the lyrics (included on their smartly-designed record sleeve, which could double as a bookmark). It’s cool, dark stuff. Worth hearing. –Lyle (Carbonated Sounds, negativesexx.bandcamp.com)
