The last EP I heard by Charles Rogers had something of a Drug Church flavour. It's clear as the nervy opener "Gumb" kicks in that there's a bit of a change this time around. I can still hear a Self Defense Family influence but it's mixed in with more of a 90s sound and while the aggression of their last EP is still there, a more nervy tension is at play and the slower tracks and stop/starts give them a bit more room to breathe. I'm pretty sure this was going to be a download release when this was first sent in but it's taken me so long to finish writing this that they've since had a tape put out by Fawning Records. Luckily there's still some left.
