SLOW MUTANTS: Demo 2016: CS

I don’t know what it is about Buffalo, N.Y. and post-punk, but they know exactly what to fucking do. Every song on this tape is a kind of twisty, paranoid, minimal, sarcastic hit—especially “Warped Moon” and “Queen.” I’ve been thinking about the line “I’ve got a gag reflex in my mind” for days. Absolutely remarkable and killer. If they’d been around in the ‘90s, we’d all be talking about them in the same breath as Hoover, Unwound, and Smart Went Crazy. –Matt Werts (Drug Party, drugparty.org)
