SALVATION: Sore Loser: CD-R

The primary target here sounds to be noise rock, which they deftly bull’s-eye. What makes shit interesting, though, is a thick strain of early grunge coloring their delivery, from the Black Flag-inspired guitar to the singer’s occasionally unnerving Cobainesque phrasing. Well executed and engaging throughout. –Jimmy Alvarado (Forge Again, forgeagainrecords.com)
