Ripping HC punk from Chicago with a little of that NWI vibe.
Our take: Demo tape from this new hardcore band out of Chicago. The style is fast and chaotic, taking inspiration from cult classics like the early Meat Puppets, Neos, and Negazione, and sounding not unlike Sorry State’s own Das Drip here and there, particularly when the guitarist hits the skinny strings hard. I’m a sucker for hardcore that’s fast as shit, but sidesteps the heaviness and macho vibes that frequently come along with the blazing tempos. The basement quality recording is great, with all the instruments coming through loud and clear despite the fuzziness and grit coating everything. LSG blasts out 7 songs in about 6 minutes and gets the fuck out. Right now my version of heaven would be no more plague and this band ripping it up in a Raleigh basement while the place explodes. Hopefully that happens one day, but in the meantime thank the lord for cassettes.
