Primitive Pact: S/T 7"
Debut 7" from this new UK82-style punk band out of new york. This thing is a total banger... it's got a slightly wonky, up front bass sound, weird effects on the lead guitars and vocals that are endearingly off-key. The vocalist actually sounds like Nathan from Teen Idles, so while most people will point to the obvious influences from the Partisans, Red Alert, etc., I think this also has just a little bit of an early DC vibe a la Teen Idles or SOA. If you've dug recent UK82-style stuff like the Savageheads or Contingent demos add this to your pile... it's definitely up there with those in terms of quality.
