RASH: Midnight Crooner: 7”

Nov 22, 2017

Yeesh. Where you been all my life, guys? Three songs—coming in at the two, three, and four-minute mark respectively—that get progressively more punishing and misanthropic as we go. Reminds me of those early Fucked Up 7”s, where they just ride a riff or two until the whole thing veers into a wall, but Rash is darker than that, too. Brash, ugly, sneering hardcore, and the length of the songs actually helps rather than hinders. Great, understated design as well. Really nice surprise here. Well done, mutants. –Keith Rosson (IFB)
