Cuntz - Force The Zone LP

"Cuntz are, obviously, well hardcore, spitting out noisy garage punk with not a care in the world. Third album Force The Zone offers more of the Australian trio’s gnarly thrashing: they sound like they’ve spent too long in the Yabba and it has warped their minds."


Vial - You're Not Safe EP

"Vial are urgent and exciting, simple and pounding, an LA band who sound like a lost gem from the city's bizarro early punk past. They wouldn't be out of place on the New Underground Life Is . . . comps, for instance. Lucky us - since they're not a band whose chapter has already folded, we get to get in deep with them and watch them grow."

La Misma - Kanizadi LP

"La Misma are a New York hardcore band whose take on the genre is hectic, strident, urgent, erratic, and cacophonous. They’ve been making some noise lately on the DIY warehouse circuit, but their new album Kanizadi still arrives as a sudden and welcome surprise. It’s a quick jolt of intensity. And while you may not be able to understand frontwoman Nay Vieira-Rosario, who rips through her lyrics in Portuguese, you can still revel in the feverish force she uses to deliver them."
