This San Fran­cis­co group just de­liv­ered a stun­ning­ly con­fi­dent de­but LP made up of smart post punk and post­core, burst­ing with elab­o­rate, dra­matur­gi­cal­ly dense song struc­tures, tight­ly in­ter­lock­ing grooves and arrange­ments. In the con­tem­po­rary land­scape you might com­pare bits and pieces of this record to an ex­pan­sive clus­ter of groups like Bat­piss, Meat Wave, Bloody Gears, Stuck, Bench Press, Noughts, Lithics or Tu­nic. Go­ing a bit fur­ther back in time, you might aswell rec­og­nize the oblig­a­tory bit of Dri­ve Like Je­hu, Fugazi or Jaw­box, even find some Wire-es­que flour­ish­es in there if you just lis­ten close­ly enough.
