Sperm: demo cassette
Demo tape from this new NY band featuring Josh from Shoppers / Bad People. I'm not really sure if the band were going for this at all, but the similarities to Broken Prayer are really striking. Like BP, nearly every song here is different from the last. There are some kind of brooding post-punk songs, some quirky midwest-style HC a la Die Kreuzen, and some stuff that just sounds like straightforward punk. All of it is raw, powerful, and interesting... if you're into forward-thinking punk and hardcore I highly recommend this one.
