6-song cassette by this d-beat band from Chicago

Our take: Open Palm Tapes brings us a cassette from this 80s USHC-sounding band from Chicago. Weak Pulse sounds like a band that would have thrived in the No Way Records era, their straight beats, shouted vocals, and straightforward yet memorable riffs recalling under the radar US hardcore classics like the Clitboys’ We Don’t Play the Game EP or the N.O.T.A. album. The production is perfect, neither too raw nor too slick, capturing the band’s power and not calling attention to itself, emphasizing Weak Pulse’s ample hooks. If you’ve ever showed up at a gig and realized you inadvertently dressed exactly like the Circle Jerks’ mascot, this one is for you. Highly recommended for all USHC heads.
