Confines: Some Sick Joke 7"
Several years after their first EP, Boston's Confines come back with their second EP. "Some Sick Joke" is actually a bit different for the band, a meandering, multi-faced song that kind of reminds me of later Citizens Arrest... i.e. bands that seemed to want to combine the directness of early Black Flag with the noodly, "free jazz" vibe of stuff like The Process of Weeding Out. The tracks on the flip are more straightforward punk, but with a similarly weird, Ginn-inspired edge to the riffing. Killer music and gorgeous packaging to boot. Side Two Records
