The kids are gonna be all right. A trio of young'uns from Kansas City, Bummer—yes, the perfect band name—sounds like it's part of an early-90s noise-rock scene that mostly existed before the band's members were even born. The crunchy, growling bass and wide-eyed, insane vocals of bands like the Jesus Lizard and Unsane and the Melvins are infused in today's 12 O'Clock Track, "Infinite Witches." The sludgy and devastating guitar riffage from front man Matt Perrin blends into the heavy, breakdown beat to form a deafening mess that somehow seems to get louder as the track barrels forth. Bummer tunes, for sure—executed with the best of bad vibes.
