PHORIDS: Self-titled: CDEP

This catchy hardcore release from Fort Worth, Texas sounds like the best of 1990s streetpunk, specifically New England bands like August Spies and The Pist. It’s recorded in an unfiltered, purist manner allowing for optimum energy, avoiding current home studio trappings. They seem to be playing major shows in their region, which is well-deserved given how instantly gratifying this EP is. Phorids is a band to keep an eye on for sure! –Art Ettinger (Self-released, phorids.bandcamp.com)
