SURFBORT: Self-titled: 7” EP

Hardcore with an odd early New York feel, more No Thanks and Beastie Boys than, say, Cause For Alarm. The guitars occasionally have a bit more texture to them than the simple structures and largely sloppy delivery may imply—and it sounds as if the responsible parties are enjoying themselves, making all the racket here. –Jimmy Alvarado (HoZac, hozacrecords.com)
