New band from NYC with globe spanning influences.  A fist pumping rager that still finds room for some super catchy melodies.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new New York City punk band that quickly got snatched up and repressed by La Vida Es Un Mus. It's easy to see why the great LVEUM were interested, because this thing RIIIIIPS. And not only is the energy level off the chart, but the music is really creative and interesting as well. Musically, it's broadly similar to some of the recent Toxic State-style punk in NYC (most obviously La Misma), but it also has a much cleaner recording and less of a pogo-punk vibe than I associate with contemporary NYC bands. It's almost like the best NYC punk bands like La Misma and Mommy were fused with the artsier vibe of recent London bands like Good Throb and Frau. In other words, there's a lot going on in this music... a lot of really interesting changes, cool off-kilter guitar harmonies, memorable vocal lines... and all wrapped up in a seriously explosive amount of energy. Highly recommended.
