RIYL: Useless Eaters, Fuzzy Vox ,The Blind Shake
Label: Basement Sounds
A group of BostonÂ bad asses known as Black Beach have graced the sprawling punk rock landscape with their own brand of aural mayhem. Â 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. Â On tracks like Self Portrait and Future Failures, Black Beach slow the tempo down andÂ sharpen their riff apparatus, concocting a proto-metal assaultÂ with a pinch of that punk bark along the outer edges. Â 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. Â Whichever subgenres of punkÂ and roll you like to tread through, there’s a little bit of all of itÂ in Black Beach.
It’s first come first served for the blue with black splatter vinyl. Â Only a hundred exist, and once those are sold out, you’ll get that tasty black wax as dark as your soul. Â Get on it.
