ROUGE: Self-titled: CS

Jul 20, 2022

First off, probably the coolest packaging I’ve ever seen on a tape: the song titles (I’m assuming) are scratch-off areas on the back of the J-card, like a lottery ticket. “Scratch & Lose!” it says. Catchy, melodic, jittering, bass-heavy dance punk that falls somewhere between the Epoxies and Atom And His Package. Wire-tight, explosive, and precise as a scalpel. Fun. –Keith Rosson (Phantom)
