Five track flexi EP from this new NYC project from ex-members of Urchin. Spike are going for a totally stripped down and primitive raw punk sound. Reminiscent of the early Discharge EPs with a touch of Scandi HC ala Svart Framtid. Even has that practice room, lo-fi vibe of primo Brazilian stuff. I can't tell if this is recorded with a drum machine (credited as "Reaper") but it's incredibly well done. Raw punk/d-beat is one of the easiest genres to be completely average at, so it's refreshing to hear some new sounds from the trusted gang at Roachleg Records.
