UNIT F: Human Zoo: CDEP

Orange County’s Unit F was about to return with another full-length when they experienced a tumultuous lineup change. These four songs are the last that were recorded with their most-recent players before the recent shift. As always, they play mid-tempo, well-produced, anthem-laden punk. The vocalist adds some gruffness this time, which mixes well with his morose Larry Damore stylings that his fans are accustomed to. Hopefully Unit F forges on with its new makeup, as these tracks demonstrate a healthy ability to evolve. –Art Ettinger (Self-released, unitfmusic.com)
