REEKS, THE: Self-titled: CS

This is a nine song tape from a band out of Austin, Texas which sounds like a hyperspeed, early ’90s East Bay punk band. Imagine, say, Crimpshrine or Cringer played on 45 instead of 33 and you would be in the general range of the sound here. The band does a good job of it and I would imagine if you have a few Recess or Dead Broke releases in your collection, this would be right up your sidewalk. –Mike Frame (Self-released, thereeks.bandcamp.com)
