ANDY HUMAN AND THE REPTOIDS

"Oakland squirm punks Andy Human & The Reptoids are back with another long player and it’s charging through the hallways ripping down your Duran Duran posters and spray-painting DEVO all over the walls. Human (nee Jordan) has been mining the nerd curdle of the ‘80s for some time now, though the band’s new album, Psychic Sidekick, might be his most complete vision yet. While they’re a bit more constrained than similar t-zone dropouts like Ausmuteants, Timmy Vulgar, or Hierophants – the band doesn’t scrape the glue-soaked freak centers as often as others – they still know how to inject a good dose of plastic shrapnel into their brand of punk. When they’re at their best they’re echoing high quality discomfort warriors like Twinkeyz and Simply Saucer for next generation of back row miscreants and the new LP rounds up quite a lot of their best. Guitars thrash, a haze of ionospheric synth static rains down, and Jordan’s nasal vocal puncture is exactly what’s called for to keep the insomniac punks running ‘til dawn. - Raven Sings the Blues

ERA BLEAK (Portland)

Wild-ass Portland punk featuring members of Dark/Light and Piss Test.

BLANK SQUARE (Castle Face)

Squirming black mold in a dingy Bayshore warehouse became sentient, creaked and took humanoid form…Blank Square and their singularly odd-punk debut, Animal I. Leaning towards the weirder end of Flesheaters but with a sterility that can only be contemporarily compared to Total Control’s Aussie hardcore quarantine no wave and then a pinch of what made DNA and Mars amazing…It’s captured with plenty of concrete and sheet metal kept in the mix and a highlight towards dissonant syncopations.
