This is an odd one. In many ways it should just be a fairly good, abrasive, straightforward hardcore record. But. But it feels like it's slightly on the wonk. Like something's at an angle. Or has been pulled askew. Like you arrive back home after a lengthy stay in hospital and something's been moved while you've been away. Like someone's been living there in your absence and has tried to put things back the way they were but hasn't quite managed it. And the feel of that person is still in the room with you while you stand there, surveying things and getting more and more panicky. Anyway. It has this raw, tearing sound to it that I really engage with, like pulling a makeshift gaffer tape bandage from a sucking flesh wound. Things're fast and frenzied and maybe remind me of Herätys having a crack at the first Dicks 7", but even that isn't right. In any event, it's pretty damn good and well worth investigating.

There's something going on that's not quite right.
