CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions

Through the three piece’s pummelling amalgamation of caustic noise, violent punk and punishing rap, SMTB have solidified the angst, unease and frustration of what it is to be human in 2019.

The Guardian

Thrashing tinnily through lo-fi garage production, they sit somewhere between At the Drive-In’s tight soapbox screeds and Death Grips’ loose, rangy sermons, and in a lineage of right-on, pissed-off US punk stretching back to Fugazi.

Loud and Quiet

While the production ensures the edges are somewhat smoother that doesn’t serve to extract their potent sting but simply to make it a smidgeon more digestible.

Noisy, rough and aggressive, a fresh view to the post-hardcore genre. Filled with violent guitar work and raw production. Not ground-breaking in any sense, but fun as hell.

A really interesting and unique punk/post-hardcore release, really have to give it a few listens to fully appreciate what these guys are doing here. Probably my favorite punk record on the year so far.

Favs: Camp Orchestra, Drought
