FROM Rochester/Syracuse/Oswego, New York
“Demo” EP
It’s funny how some things sound better after a period of time. I mean I couldn’t stand the direction a lot of straightedge hardcore bands were going in the early ’90s when they stared getting a bit more tuneful and a little slower. Remember the TURNING POINT LP or the BOLD EP? Well, that sound comes through on this release, and maybe it’s because I’m getting sick of all the generic hardcore or something, but this sounds really refreshing right now and it’s just what the doctor ordered. All four tracks on this EP are jam packed with excellent guitar riffs and heartfelt words of passion. The standout track here is “Sector IV,” which deals with how we lose our humanity by ignoring the displaced and the poor. The rest of the songs fall into the realm of personal, but they hit just right with honesty and emotion.

The same goes for “Tinctures Are 90% Alcohol,” “People I Live With” and “Down in Denver.” They’re all part of the story of Canino’s move out west. Losing friends, wandering cities and quoting Bruce Springsteen (“It’s hard to be a saint in the city”) are spread throughout the seven-inch, which would be depressing were it not for the sweet, succulent instrumentation. Where “People I Live With” gets somber, “Down in Denver” rocks hard and fast to balance out its images of urban decay.
