I’m not a big fan of noise rock really but this record/demo does it for me. I’m digging Hedgehog’s gloomy dark direction.
Gou Ri De 狗日的 S/T
I guess this can be translated as “Of Dog Days” or according to the band “motherf**r”… it’s a recent release from these kids in Yunnan, some of which are part of the Québec Redneck Bluegrass Project. It sounds good y’all! It’s funny how I’m starting to get back into hardcore recently with Black Flag and the likes… and this one fits right in.
It’s unfortunate that they broke up just as I heard of them but they do sound like extremely cool cats if I’m to go by this interview they did on a Kunming Expat Rag before their last show:
get the album over on Bandcamp:
hat tip to Nevin Domer of Maybe Mars for Gouride
there you go, dazeheads…. some tunes to keep you entertained during national day.
Keep you yes posted for more reviews with Glowcurve, Fever Machine and more coming soon.
