Posthumothous Pounce – Yambag

May 1, 2020

What’s more political than songs about entities that have no say in anything that humans can inflict upon them?”⁠

The tracks on Yambag’s swan-song release (which are mostly named after animals), teeter between hardcore punk and good ol-fashioned rock-and-roll, with Mr E. breathlessly shouting god-knows how many words per minute over the top. The production, jangly and crushed guitars, and the drummers’ blast-beats gives the impression that the whole enterprise could come crashing down at any second. A must listen for anyone interested in hardcore like BIB or Denver’s own Goon and Convulse Records. -Derek
