Demo cassette from this new punk/hardcore band out of Minneapolis.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new Minneapolis band featuring former members of Brain Tumors and, I'm sure, many others. Brain Tumors was pretty good, but man... Citric Dummies are way, way better. I really have no idea how to describe their sound... I mean it's definitely hardcore, but it has these really distinctive vocals that are kinda-sorta melodic most of the time, but often erupt into these big sing-song choruses that really don't sound like much of anything I've ever heard. My favorite one is the sing-song chant of the demo's closing song, "Life Is So Horrifying," words that sound creepily perfect when delivered in the quirky vocal harmonies in the song's chorus. I think the artwork was done by one of the geniuses behind Cruelster and Perverts Again, and if you like that warped Clevo thing (particularly the stuff more on the Darvocets end of things) you'll like this, but it's very much its own thing. Definitely one of the most distinctive and memorable demos I've heard in a while. Highly recommended.
