The New Flesh: Reality 12"
Debut LP from this new Oakland post-punk band. This is a really striking LP with a dense, complex post-punk sound delivered with the speed and aggression of hardcore. On first listen it might sound a little bit like Ice Age (particularly the vocals), but the band is much tighter and the guitar lines are a lot more straightforward and poppy... if you're into the pop-infused post-punk sound of bands like Echo and Bunnymen and the Sound but you also crave the power and energy of hardcore definitely check this out... a very strong statement. Self-released
