XILES, THE: No Comply: CD

Jan 31, 2018

Let’s start off this review by noting that The Xiles have done a great job recreating the Dischord House cover shot. I’m not sure if it’s the actual house, but well done either way. Given the art and the looks of these guys, I predict a bunch of tough guy, metal guitar tone crud. Thankfully, it’s not the case. What we have is eight tunes if of classic street punk crossed with—no kidding—the Sex Pistols. The title track especially gives off this vibe. A solid debut. –Steve Adamyk (thexiles.bandcamp.com)
