    Super fun bunch of songs — and unlike similar DIY comps, a lot of these tunes aren't just enjoyable shambles, but legit well-played blasts of solid punk. Totally flat and decently quiet pressing. Beware - this is trebly, reedy-sounding stuff, to the point that I wondered if there was something up with my system at first. But I checked streaming versions and that's just how a lot of this stuff was recorded. Think of it as some nice sandpaper for your ears.

    Strange, that these weren´t completely sold out when you take into account that it´s RSD2022-only release.

    Extremely fun and wild compilation — sounds great too and has some interesting write ups on the record sleeves. The bonus 7” is a fun touch.
