SAWCHUK: Modern Love: LP

Jan 25, 2023

I’m a weird multiracial dude who likes a lot of stuff, so sometimes I get jealous of people with simple identities, who are like “I’m baseball guy” or “I’m ska lady.” They have a clear direction through life, and are probably easy to shop for on their birthdays. But I can’t shake the feeling that they’re kinda boring. Sawchuk are a Detroit hardcore band named after a legendary hockey goalie, their record cover’s got swatches of purple and teal, the lyrics are bummed out and introspective, and the music is hard-hitting old school HC with crusty d-beat moments. It serves as a kick-ass reminder that the coolest shit is usually pretty complicated. –Chris Terry (
