This Bay Area guitar-and-drums duo is one of those bands whose reputation and name recognition simply aren’t as aligned as they should be. Despite being consistently and enthusiastically cited by the smartest tastemakers in heavy-music circles, the Southern Lord recording artists still have a disproportionately low profile. And that’s a major shame because they rip the kind of slashing sonic abuse that’s just perfectly calibrated. Like a nastier cousin to thrash, their double-barreled punk sludge is built of heroic playing but zero cheese or wankery to blunt their force and velocity. This unrelenting locomotive of overdriven riffs, gunning beats and hairy vocals is one seriously dirty and aggressive blitz. They’ve mostly played supporting roles to other national touring bands here, but this time they’re the headliners, so expect them to blow the goddamned house down. – Bao Le-Huu
