Do you have this itch for some latter-day punk goodness that just won't dip out? Most probably not, given the A+ material that the scene's been recently putting down for the table. There are too many bands as of late that harbors a certain dazzle. Case and point, be it Protomartyr's stygian narratives, driven with extra doom, black midi's chaotic polyrhythms or IDLES' civilized angst. It's not that easy to try & deviate from what's been already created for originality points, but it's fun ... read more

wow. i knew nothing of this except for a 77 from pitchfork. im shocked and ready for more. the EP's this year have been fantastic. This thing is huge, its a wonderful mix of art punk, ambient, noise, dance-punk, post-punk and a little hardcore sprinkled in there. my score could go up from a 9/10 too. Squid is definitely one of those groups to keep an eye on, they are special.

Well hot damn these boys are onto something!

One of the most exciting up and coming acts in today’s punk scene for sure! This little EP has so much pizazz and character. All the ideas that they go for on this record are executed wonderfully and they seem to have a promising future ahead of them!

The vocals were a little lackluster but that is really the main area where improvement is needed, everything I hear on this EP is exceptional

Extremely excited to see what they have going on next!
Definitely on my radar now :)

Savage works well as an opener, I suppose... but I really wish it was on the same level as the following tracks.
One of the best EPs of this year, regardless of that.

Just to keep tabs-- Match Bet is most likely on my top 10 songs of the year list
