San Francisco's Doomed Comp

Check out our swan song on this fresh new comp: here


Wednesday, November 27, 2013




One of the best local bands around right now; members of SYNTHETIC ID kicking out desolate jams that remind me of later DESPERATE BICYCLES and CRISIS with the omnipresent WIPERS influence that is currently mowing down modern day punks with no remorse. Shards of guitar mutate post-punk basslines creating a danceable despair with bratty CHRIS BAILEY-gone-darkwave vocals, but it's punk. Not garage not post-punk not deathrock or whatever - if you are a fan of say TERRIBLE FEELINGS and also RANK/XEROX this will be your new obsession... (LG) (Erste Theke Tontrager / Satellite Visions)



Cold Circuits appear to be a brother band to Synthetic ID, but their sound is just about as different as it is similar. The icy, anxiety-ridden post-punk is replaced by agitated, salivating thud punk. Less twitching, more pogoing; but still ravaged by the mounting dissolution and paranoia. A rhythm section bound for glory, but still bound by the white hot darkness. Cold and bleak, but bouncing in defiance, with sporadic tinges of fear. –Daryl Gussin (Satellite Visions, cruciavibez@gmail.com / Erste Theke Tonträger, vaukajott@gmx.de)
