The latest from Dirtnap Records is a split 7″ featuring LOW CULTURE and NEEDLES//PINS. Together both bands serve up their melodic, ramshackle version of caffeinated pop-punk.
The 7″ quickly leaves you with little doubt that this is anything but a Dirtnap product. Both bands execute their own exhilarating blend of punk, like sticking you on the highway in a car with a cinder block tied to the gas pedal. Low Culture is led by Chris Mason and Joe Ayoub’s soaring vocals, backed by a charge of high-voltage guitars for an airtight sound. Needles//Pins deliver their mess in similar fashion, spearheaded by the snotty snarls of Adam Solomonian. Their B-side “Bored” is a melodic nugget of anthemic punk rock, arranged with dagger-like chords and a marching beat. Listen to an A-side cut by Low Culture right here – vocals bounce with reverb while guitars stir up a stormy, angular onslaught. Keep checking the Dirtnap Records website for when the 7″ becomes available!
