Violent Party: Ex Libris 7" (new)
Latest EP from this noise-punk band who you may remember from previous releases on labels like SPHC and Konton Crasher. If you've heard these guys before you should know what to expect... total Japanese-style noise punk in the Confuse tradition. I feel like these guys are almost the prototypical modern band of this style because their music is so precisely what I think of when I imagine this style... 1-2-1-2 drumming, semi-melodic bass, screamed vocals, and a guitar that's so noisy that it almost sounds like a helicopter (or maybe a spaceship?) flying over the recording studio. It's certainly not for everyone, but if you're the type who lives for records by the Wankys and owns a big stack of vinyl from the SPHC label you will, without a doubt, dig this as it's pretty much a perfect execution of the style.
