Featured Release Roundup, May 10, 2017

No Defenses: Released 12” (Demo Tapes) Archival release from this vintage UK anarcho band. Apparently this was slated to be an LP for Crass Records, but the band dissolved before they could finish work on the album. Listening to this now, it’s a delightful little time capsule. Comparing this to a lot of retro anarcho that’s been making the rounds in the punk scene for the past couple of years, I realize that modern bands have a lot of trouble living down the influence of hardcore. They might inject some Penny Rimbaud-esque skittery snare work or a melodic vocal, but the shape of modern anarcho-punk is very much grounded in hardcore. However, No Defenses bear no marks of that influence. This is true weirdo music, and it still sounds radical in 2017. I mean, you can certainly hear the influence of the bigger UK punk stuff of the time (a few tracks are quite Banshees-esque, which seems like it might have been a particular influence) as well as the original group of anarcho bands (particularly the more melodic / less rock ones like Zounds, Chumbawumba, and Flux of Pink Indians), but in a lot of other ways the music of this area and era is totally singular, and this LP is very representative. The artwork is a little on the weird side, but you do get a Radio Raheem-style booklet packed with ephemera, so that’s pretty cool. If you’re the kind of person who jocks bands like Hysteria Ward and Hagar the Womb this is going to be right up your alley.

The Nurse: Discography 12” (La Vida Es Un Mus) Discography release from this early 80s Japanese punk band. I’m an absolute sucker for Japanese bands of this era because the overall vibe is so unique. I’m not sure if it’s the way that they constructed riffs and songs, something about the production, or just the way that it all fits together, but the bands that come from this scene—particularly the ones who put out records on the great ADK label, which released Nurse’s 2nd EP—are instantly identifiable and sound like nothing else in the history of music. You won’t hear any of the big, dramatic song structures of later Burning Spirits-style bands like Death Side or Judgement, nor will you get the blazing fast hardcore of Systematic Death, the over the top noise of Confuse or the catchiness of the Stalin, but there’s something unique and valuable—if a little more understated—here nevertheless. Both of the bands EPs have been hugely collectible for some time now, and if you’re interested in 80s Japanese punk it’s pretty much certain that you have them on your want list, but also likely that you’ve never been able to track them down (particularly the first one on the Incest label, which is one of those giga-rarities). While it’s hard to see someone with only a passing interest in Japanese punk being totally blown away by Nurse, those of you who like to dig deeper than those aforementioned bands will find a whole lot to like here, particularly if, like me, you remain entranced by this magical little moment in the history of music.

Una Bestia Incontrolable: Metamorphosi 12” (La Vida Es Un Mus) I’m still having a bit of trouble wrapping my ears and mind around this latest 12” from Spain’s Una Bestia Incontrolable. The first thing that stuck out to me was the tempo… not only are there not really any fast songs on this record, but every song seems to chug along at a similar middle tempo. The effect of this choice is that all of the songs kind of blend together into this big whole… before you get oriented to these songs, it’s easy to lose track of which track you’re listening to, and I find myself getting into a mode of listening that I associate with techno, classical, krautrock, or other forms of music where the pieces are longer, more cinematic in scope, and rely on gradually evolving structures rather than repeating patterns that alternate in different sequences. It’s not a mode that I’m wholly unaccustomed to, but it is strange for a hardcore band, and requires some adjustment to your listening habits to start to make sense of this thing. Once you do crack that code, though, this thing really starts to unfold. The way that Una Bestia builds a song around a riff or a phrase almost reminds me of a great jazz band, but they’re simpler, more primitive, more direct, and (it goes without saying) more punk. And as with jazz, the payoff isn’t a big chorus or a triumphant key change, but rather the way that the micro interacts with the macro. I feel like I’m basically rambling about this record, but even if you can’t make sense of what I’m trying to get across, hopefully it’s clear that this records is one of those puzzling things that intrigues me but doesn’t quite make sense to me, at least not in the beginning. If you have your idea(l) of what hardcore is and you like to hear bands that live up to it then you’ll probably want to steer clear of this one, but if you like those puzzles this is bound to spend more than its fair share of time on your turntable.

The Pacifics: Quadrafenians 7” (Mistkäfer) Latest EP from this Irish band that features half of the #1s among their ranks. When I first heard about the Pacifics the conceit was that they were doing a kind of Cavern Club-era Beatles type of throwback rock and roll, and while that element hasn’t been completely purged from their sound (particularly on the closing rave-up, “Burgers and Chips”), at this point they don’t sound all that different from the #1s to my ears, and honestly I couldn’t be happier with that fact. Honestly, though, I feel like the surface trappings of this record are irrelevant. What is so great about it isn’t the vintage-sounding reverb on the lead guitar (though that sounds really, really good) or that they nail the vibe of some particular record that I already love, but rather that these are four classic pop tunes. These folks know how to write a fuckin’ song, and there isn’t anything even approaching a dud here. If you live for music that combines the visceral thrill of a perfectly-penned pop song with the manic energy of punk rock, then you need this. Highly recommended.

Muff Divers: Dreams of the Gentlest Texture12” (Lumpy) Debut LP from this Chicago duo, and I think it’s pretty much a shoe-in for my “Best of 2017” list. It’s no secret that we here at Sorry State are enthusiastic devotees of Joe Sussman’s work—he’s also a key player in Nancy as well as Dangus Tarkus—and Dreams of the Gentlest Texture is the best thing he’s done so far. I’ve wasted a lot of time thinking (and having idle conversations, mostly with Seth and Jeff) about what makes a Muff Divers song different from a Nancy song or a Dangus Tarkus song, but I’m not sure there’s an answer to that riddle. The more important thing to note here is that—as good as all of those projects’ releases have been for some time now—each new one seems to be better than the last, and this is the best one yet. The absolutely scorching riff that starts off the album would fit perfectly on a Powerpearls comp if you slowed the record down to 33RPM; at 45RPM, though, listening to it evokes a feeling similar to eating an entire Easter basket full of candy all in one morning… in a good way! Somehow, Muff Divers manage to sustain that sugar-rush feeling across eleven tracks, not by crafting a well-rounded set of songs, but rather by the sheer brute force with which they shove great riffs and great melodies down your through one after the other. They never deviate from an It’s Alive-esque manic tempo, restricting any use of finesse to shredding guitar licks (that are somehow still insanely melodic) and densely-packed arrangements that constantly play guitar, vocals, bass, and synth off of one another in ways that you hardly notice are clever because they zip by so fast. If you’ve already worn out the great Midnite Snaxxx album from earlier this year, this is the only thing I’ve heard that’s worthy of replacing its spot in your rotation.

Smart Dads: Bummer Summer12” (Radio Raheem) Radio Raheem Records works their magic again, this time on a real obscurity: a 1982 cassette from this band out of San Antonio, Texas. While I have heard of a couple of the projects that Smart Dads’ members went on to—the underrated Bang Gang as well as Hickoids—this was totally new to me, and unlike a lot of stuff that’s been dug up in the past few years this is fuckin’ great! Despite the rather late date on this one, Smart Dads sound way more ’77 than ’82 to my ears, with nary a trace of hardcore in their sound and a whole bunch of big riffs and choruses that betray both their love of the Ramones and Sex Pistols as well as the classic rock they no doubt grew up on. Of course there’s a sprinkling of the weirdness that I associate with early Texas punk, but at their core these are just amped-up, energetic rock songs, and really good ones at that. The best of the bunch is the title track, which leads off the tape with its massive chorus hook, but the whole thing is solid. Had they been from a city with more of a punk infrastructure I have no doubt that Smart Dads had a classic punk single in them (if they were from California they seem like they’d be a shoe-in for Dangerhouse), but I’ll take this snazzy-looking one-sided 12”, cassette transfer issues and all. Oh, and since this is on Radio Raheem of course you get an extensive, full-color booklet jam-packed with photos, flyers, and interesting liner notes. Definitely in the top tier of recent punk rock archaeological finds.

Fried E.M.: S/T 7” (Lumpy) Debut record from this new band out of St. Louis, but if you blindfolded me (actually, I’m not really sure why you would have to blindfold me, but I guess that’s how these sayings go) and told me this was from New York I would have no trouble believing it, except perhaps for the fact that it’s recorded much better than a lot of the Toxic State-type stuff that it sounds like. The band that Fried E.M. sound the most like is Crazy Spirit, though they’re a hair faster, they don’t tend to hang on riffs in that Krautrock-y way that CS do, and they’re more apt to reach for whiplash, hardcore-style changes and transitions. I think there’s also something of Kaleidoscope’s somewhat more ambitious, more psychedelic take on this sound here… or at the very least if you dig what Kaleidoscope are doing I think you’d probably like Fried E.M. too. Now that the New Yorkers seem to have abandoned this sound, it’s time for the cretins of the country’s less trafficked areas like the midwest and the south to take up the torch and march this sound into its most twisted and contorted depths. I must say I’m looking forward to that journey.

Trauma Harness: Ghost of a Flea7” (Lumpy) Are Trauma Harness the band with the most releases on Lumpy Records? I think that at this point they may have even surpassed Lumpy & the Dumpers. Anyway, the fact that they put out so many records despite the fact that they’re a quasi-uncomfortable fit on the label reminds me a lot of Sorry State’s relationship with Whatever Brains, and just as the people who bought Direct Control and Koro records were probably really confused by the ‘Brains, the people who buy Lumpy and CCTV records probably don’t quite know what to make of Trauma Harness, but no doubt the people who have taken the time to really hear this band appreciate them a great deal. On this latest single they come at “new wave” from a few different directions to uniformly strong results. The a-side is a guitar-based, big melodic pop song that reminds me of guitar-based 80s new wave bands like the Chameleons or Modern English, while the two tracks on the b-side lean on the synths a little bit harder, going in more of a Human League / Depeche Mode kind of direction. While the vocals are a tad on the unconventional side (at least for pop music), the pop songcraft shines through and ensures that no matter what style they’re pursuing Trauma Harness’s songs are going to be really cool and memorable.

Mala Leche: S/T 7” (Lumpy) I’m not really sure what the deal is with this record… Lumpy’s description mentions rather vaguely that this project is a “St. Louis / Minneapolis connection,” but I don’t really know anything other than that. I am wondering, though, is the first track (which is titled “Pantallas”) a synth cover of “I Peed in the Pool” by Lumpy? Or does it just have a really similar chord pattern? Pantalla means “screen” in Spanish, so it doesn’t appear that the lyrics are a translation, but boy are the songs similar. Anyway, aside from that little bit of intrigue I should probably tell you that (on the a-side at least) Mala Leche sound to my ears like a synth-and-acoustic-drums combo, and while there are really not too many similarities in terms of songwriting style or vibe, I believe that whenever you hear a band with that setup of instruments you are legally obligated to compare them to the Screamers. However, something like Natural Causes’ or Ausmuteants’ synth-inflected take on the classic jittery punk formula would be a much better comparison. The songs on the b-side sound like they’re recorded with electronic drums, but the vibe is similar, if not a little noisier and more desperate. In addition to just being generally into the way this band goes about writing and recording songs, I really like the fact that there are nine fully-formed songs on this 7” record. Despite the vast difference in instrumentation, it feels like a mini-full length in a similar way to a lot of classic early 80s hardcore EPs. Anyway, that’s a whole lot of references to throw out, but if you’re into the more jittery and nervous bands on Lumpy like Muff Divers (particularly their 7”) and BB Eye I’d strongly recommend snatching this up.

Faux Depart: demo cassette (Roll Mops) Debut cassette from this French band, and it’s a shame that it’s not on vinyl (at least not yet), because it’s more fully realized than a lot of proper full-lengths I hear these days. The recording is great, the songs are extremely well developed, and there’s more than enough material here for a 12” record, so here’s hoping some enterprising label gets on it. Stylistically, Faux Depart are in the same broad category as bands like the Marked Men; like the Marked Men, Faux Depart play in a classic, upbeat melodic punk style, though Faux Depart have a bit more ’77-era punk in their DNA. Indeed, if you’re not overly fussed about your ’77-style bands having vintage-sounding production, fans of old European melodic punk like Ivy Green or Hubble Bubble will absolutely love this. Definitely one of the best cassette releases we’ve gotten in a while, and very highly recommended if you’re a fan of this catchy, pop-inflected punk sound.

PMS 84: Easy Way Out 12” (Discos Enfermos) After a couple of killer 7”s, here’’s the debut full-length from Portland’s PMS 84. PMS 84 has long been a favorite around Sorry State, and while I think they miss their original vocalist’s more unique and identifiable style, they still write some of the absolute best UK82-style punk out there. While a lot of bands who take the Riot City and No Future catalogs as their inspiration sound almost deliberately plodding to my ears, PMS 84 have a real spring in their step, making more upbeat and memorable bands like the Partisans and Ultra Violent the best reference points for their sound. While this sound can start to wear on the ear over the course of a full-length, PMS 84 deftly throws you a bone in the form of a super catchy guitar lead, bass break, or squeal of guitar feedback just as you think that your attention is starting to wonder. A perfectly-executed punk full-length by a band with some of the most airtight songwriting you’ll find.

Bad Breeding: DIvide LP (Iron Lung) Much-anticipated second LP from this killer band from the UK. Their first one was a total enigma… it seemed to come out of nowhere, and before I could really get a handle on it everyone had snapped up the copies that we got in the store, so I feel like I never really got to live with that record in the way that I wanted to. However, I’ve been full-on feasting on this new one. I guess the big question—as it is for just about any sophomore effort—is, “is it as good as the first one?” This has been the subject of a lot of conversation around the shop, and while most people seem to prefer the first one, as of right now I’m coming down pretty hard on the side of Divide. I mean, sonically speaking, not much has really changed. Bad Breeding still sound like hardcore that’s gleefully unaware of all of the genre’s cliches. It’s basically heavy, intense music that sounds like it was made by people who either aren’t steeped enough in the genre’s conventions to be influenced by them, or they’re so talented that they’re able to avoid those conventions. As a result, there’s a sense of freshness to Bad Breeding that very few bands have. And that freshness doesn’t just come from sounding like an old record that still sounds fresh, but rather just because it seems like Bad Breeding is doing something genuinely new. What is that thing? I mean, basically it seems like it’s taking the more experimental end of anarcho-punk—stuff like Flux of Pink Indians and Crass at their slightly more out-there moments (though thankfully Bad Breeding never copy any Penny Rimbaud beats, which can be a little too on the nose for my tastes)—and make it way heavier, infusing it with a big and burly guitar sound that’s sort of like Killing Joke playing through some heavy AmRep band’s equipment. Anyway, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t love Divide if you loved the first album, but I think that this one benefits from a little more concision and focus. It’s the kind record that can appeal to you if you’re a die-hard hardcore person, or if you just like weird and experimental music… if you took my recommendation on the great Housewives 12” from a while back, I could see this catching your ear in much the same way. Any way you slice it, though, Bad Breeding is one of the best bands going and this is a total must-hear record.

Sorex: Portrait of a Prisoner 12” (Radio Raheem) Another expertly-crafted archival release from the great Radio Raheem Records. Much like the Smart Dads LP they recently put out, this LP is from a total obscurity: Redondo Beach, California’s Sorex. At first listen, Sorex sound almost comically generic, like the prototypical teenage hardcore band from 1980s California. However, when you listen closely (and you have to because these recordings are pretty no-frills, though weirdly their lone vinyl releases is probably the worst-sounding thing on here) you see there’s actually a bit more to them than initially meets the eye. Sure, the lazy comparisons to second-string bands from the same scene like Anti or China White aren’t entirely out of place, but there are a lot of little moments here that catch my attention. In particular, there’s a bulldozer quality to some of their hardcore songs that’s reminiscent of early Agnostic Front—a lot of this music isn’t a million miles away from the comp of early AF material that Radio Raheem released—only with more California-style vocals. And even though some of those hardcore songs are about as full-bore and confrontational as the genre gets, you can also hear a bit of classic punk influence in the band’s sound, particularly in the catchy choruses… I’d be willing to bet good money that the members of Sorex had records by bands like GBH and Channel 3 in their collection, as well as a smattering of the ’77-era UK classics. Yeah, it’s the same stew of influences that fueled literally thousands of similar bands and at the end of the day there isn’t really all that much to differentiate Sorex from the pack, but if you dig diving deep into the sounds of this era, you’re definitely in Radio Raheem’s target audience and you’ll get a big kick out of this LP. Oh, and it goes without saying that the packaging here is as exquisite as every other Radio Raheem releases so far, with a big full-color booklet packed with liner notes and visual ephemera.

Lux: demo cassette (Discos Enfermos) Demo cassette from this new hardcore-infused anarcho band out of Barcelona. While there are a lot of bands pursuing a similar tack in the current punk scene, Lux sound pretty special to my ears. The main thing that sticks out to me is the drumming, which has a really strong and unique style that seems to take equal parts from Penny Rimbaud’s skittering snare rhythms and the propulsive forward march of the Partisans. I’m not really sure how the drummer is pulling this off, but it’s really, really cool. The vocalist also has a pretty distinctive shout that reminds me a bit of the singer for Sad Boys. The recording quality is as rough as you’d expect from a bunch of Barcelonan anarchists, but that’s pretty much to be expected. Anyway, if you’re into this neo-retro-anarcho sound, this is a pretty cool one.

Warm Bodies: Eat Snot and Rot cassette (self-released) Latest cassette EP from this Kansas City punk phenomenon that has quickly become one of my very favorite punk bands in the world. As I noted in my description of their most recent 7” on Thrilling Living, Warm Bodies bear a striking resemblance to Sorry State’s own Davidians, something that is perhaps even more apparent on this material than it was on My Burning Love. There’s the wild-sounding tremolo effect on the guitars, the post-punk-like interplay between the guitar and the bass that’s somehow rendered at fully hardcore tempos, and the way the shouted staccato vocals seem to skip along the surface like a rock across the surface of a choppy pond… but the vibe is so utterly different. Rather than Davidians’ studied artiness, Warm Bodies sound unrestrained and wild, like a lot of the Lumpy Records and Total Punk-type bands that they’re typically associated with. In other words, Warm Bodies are a treat for both the brain and the gut in equal measure, and the ability to balance those two things so things so expertly is as rare a quality as you’re going to find in punk rock. Buy everything this band has ever done (and probably will do!), including this tape. If your musical tastes resemble mine at all, you won’t be disappointed.
