Lexicon Devils: Vegetative State 7"
Houston's Agrowax switch things up a little for this 7", which is the debut from a new Italian garage/punk band. Like their label-mates in Guilt Party, Lexicon Devils have a sound that's informed by the catchy, minimally distorted hardcore of bands like Amde Petersen's Arme and Henry Fiat's Open sore, but Lexicon Devils have much more melodic vocals and are overall quite catchy. It sounds a lot like Blood, Guts, & Pussy-era Dwarves, the Hives' fastest stuff or the early Smart Cops stuff. Fast and catchy... what more could you ask of a punk 7"?
