This Melbourne group has been around before. That was sometime during the 90's and back then, their sound could be described as your typical, slightly emo-fied postcore style of that period with echoes of Chavez, Slint and Polvo. Their first new songs in a quarter-century however are quite far from a nostalgic retread of their earlier tunes. Instead, we get presented an all-new and slick post punk sound clearly belonging into the present day, which doesn't look out of place among acts like say, Sleepies, Gotobeds or Drahla, at the same time sounding rather timeless and mature in all the best ways, at times also evoking a subtle Moving Targets or Volcano Suns vibe.Album-Stream →
It's been a few years since i last heard of London group Sarcasm. On their latest and, apparently, last EP their ultra-minimalist post punk with strong hints of Crass and more recent bands like Marbled Eye, Rank/Xerox or Labor still sounds pretty much as if not a minute has gone by since then, which is totally fine with me. Quite possibly, these songs were recorded not long after their 2017 Malarial Bog EP.Album-Stream →
