Flesh World: S/T 12"

La Vida Es Un Mus


Debut 12" from this San Francisco band who (I believe) features members of Needles and Talk Is Poison. I've heard these guys kind of grouped in with the neo-post-punk sound, but this isn't chorus pedal and eyeliner music... rather, Flesh World sound to me like a punk version of a 90s Creation Records band. They have those big, noisy, yet melodic guitars and a great female vocalist, but their songs have the energy and power that you'd expect from people who came up through the hardcore scene. It's a little bit subtle and understated so may not knock you out on the first listen, but I've been going back to this LP again and again.
