RIYL: Useless Eaters, Fuzzy Vox ,The Blind Shake

Label: Basement Sounds

A group of Boston bad asses known as Black Beach have graced the sprawling punk rock landscape with their own brand of aural mayhem.  Shallow Creatures is a collection of 8 tracks varying from slower sludgy jams to heart-pounding neck-throttling scorchers.

They’ve been classified as a punk band, but there’s a lot happening here.  On tracks like Self Portrait and Future Failures, Black Beach slow the tempo down and sharpen their riff apparatus, concocting a proto-metal assault with a pinch of that punk bark along the outer edges.  Static Sound stretches into an experimental vein, playing with off-beat sci-fi synths and finding grungy grooves that remind me of Bleach-era Nirvana.  Whichever subgenres of punk and roll you like to tread through, there’s a little bit of all of it in Black Beach.

It’s first come first served for the blue with black splatter vinyl.  Only a hundred exist, and once those are sold out, you’ll get that tasty black wax as dark as your soul.  Get on it.
