The first release from this Houston quartet reveals a startlingly well-developed sound. This bold, forceful, thought-provoking EP recalls a whole lineage of loud indie rock, from Mission of Burma and Dinosaur Jr. to Fugazi and Sonic Youth to Jawbox and Hum to Drive Like Jehu and Sunny Day Real Estate, with dashes of something like Kyuss or Helmet thrown in, all while defying direct comparison to anyone in particular.
