Flesh Wounds: S/T 12"

Snot Releases


After a single on Merge(!), here's the debut LP from North Carolina's Flesh Wounds. I liked the Merge single but thought it sounded a bit too produced for the band, but this LP captures Flesh Wounds at their raw, snotty, and catchy best. Flesh Wounds is definitely in the same minimal garage-punk vein as bands like Sick Thoughts, the Reatards, Teengenerate, etc., which is a style I can really love but really hate when it's done poorly. Flesh Wounds nail it here, though... fast, near-hardcore tempos, raw vocals, and insanely catchy lead guitar all over everything. The best garage rock record to come out of North Carolina ever? Maybe, and I think it's a national contender as well. Self-released and crazy limited (I think I heard something about 200 copies?), so if you're interested don't sleep...
