GRINDCORE. Both bands have had a huge impact on the extreme music emerging from California over the last decade and a half, and play/played their own brands of grindcore and/or powerviolence. PHOBIA have been leveling cities for about 25 years now, and on this LP expel 4 blasts of death-style grind. Considering that it was recorded on July 24, 1993 at The Butt-Cave in Santa Ana, California, the sound quality on their side definitely exceeded my expectations. A great early set, by a legendary band. On the flip, PLUTOCRACY put their out-of-control stylings on display by way of 8 bruising tracks. These guys created their own genre of grindcore that could never possibly be copied. They play with precision and conviction, and conjure a well-balanced blend of politics, humor, and fury.

HARDCORE. PIG HEART TRANSPLANT manipulates elements of the debut 7" by Bay-Area hardcore outfit VACUUM. So you still get the hardcore - and on 1 track, something resembling the band itself, blowing out the walls of a small studio. Elsewhere it’s just vocal tracks, manipulated to sound like concussion bombing, or the instruments jumbled up and pushed through a series of filters and effects until it’s unintelligible. It's a short record and probably of limited interest, but most people have already beaten you to the punch by now, so get it while you still can. Make this your last purchase before the economy collapses. Limited to 400 copies.

HARDCORE. By now people know that most of the music coming out of Olympia is important in some way, be it artistically or politically. PHYSIQUE manages to hit both points by channeling the classic DISCHARGE model of poetic, simplistic sloganeering and carefully crafted, noise fueled d-Beat punk music. "punk life is shit" exists to fight the nightmarish reality of inept politicians, capitalism, colonialism, gender struggles, Jesus useless Christ and impending nuclear war that we all live in. Colored (yellow) vinyl comes with an etched b-side, poster inlay and includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. PHYSIQUE are back to start 2019 with their devastating sophomore release, "the evolution of combat". The four piece from Olympia, Washington who formed in 2017 play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, crust, and d-beat within their sound. Musically, PHYSIQUE can be loosely compared to bands such as CHURCH WHIP, SECT MARK, LOWEST FORM, HOAX, and other like-minded bands. Overall, "the evolution of combat" makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed. Highly recommended - enjoy!

POST-HARDCORE. "keep you" accelerates the band's trajectory from a melodic hardcore act to a group that creates heaviness and weight via raw emotion instead of distortion. It is an expansive statement that is defined as much by what the listener hears as it is the dramatic space that hangs between each note. "keep you" deals with familiar concepts like mortality and communication in an intensely personal way that's also remarkably relatable in its honesty.
