Cry it out (trim it short) with the new track from Gulfer


Gulfer posted a track off their new LP What Gives? today, so cry it out or geek out over the noodling depending on what you’re into. The local math/emo four-piece is wrapping up a month of touring in Europe before heading home to put out the new record.

Here’s the band playing “Trim it Short” live in Venice on July 14.


Fakes scream into primordial punk’s blackened chest cavity


Fakes tap into the blackened chest cavity where punk’s heart should be, sustaining the kind of fuzz and fury that I would expect at CBGB if I’d been alive in the ’70s. The local trio delivers live, quickly banishing any chilled-out vibes from Casa earlier this month before Kurvi Tasch took the stage – subtitles for whatever movie was being projected strewn across their all-black attire for their 20-minute set. Here’s their split with Harsh Reality for Misery Loves Co., get the mp3s / cassette from their Bandcamp page.
