PREENING: Nice Dice: 7” EP

Another round of skronky punk from these Oakland noisemongers. Equal parts free jazz and classic Bay Area free punk, the four tracks here recall both Trout Mask Replica and Subterranean Records’ more adventurous releases. Highly recommended for those who don’t mind indulging in the not-quite-so-easily digestible. –Jimmy Alvarado (Fine Concepts, fineconcepts.org)
