Sokea Piste: Oire 7"
Debut 7" from this great Finnish band featuring members of the almighty Kyklooppien Sukkupputto. While I like their 12" a little better, this 7" is filled with three tracks of the same kind of dark, brooding, complex hardcore that was a trademark of the best KP material. If you're wondering what some hardcore-savvy Finns would do with the hardcore-meets-noise-rock aesthetic of bands like Pollution and Double Negative, then look no further. The packaging on this one is absolutely STUNNING as well, with two-color, screenprinted jackets and a full-color insert. Peter Walker Records
