CEMETERY


Some folks are taking the current injection of '80s goth into DIY punk a little more seriously than others, and doing so with frightening success. Enter: CEMETERY. A Chicago quartet making music that begs for a dark corner, arms folded in silent frustration while vocals snarl out the very emotions that you've spent your entire adolescence suppressing. Driving, deliberate and decidedly punk, CEMETERY temper their attack with ambient numbers to close each side, giving a genuinely creepy vibe to the tape before you flip it over and get drawn in by distorted bass and guitars that scream in from 30 years ago and pick slide into your list of current favorites. Be careful, this one sneaks up on you, and just gets better the more you listen.

It took me a minute to get into this (maybe the authenticity of the sound smacked of rip-off?) but I'm into this tape now. Very into it. Any idea where I can buy the hard copy?
