I got turned on to this record by Sweeping Promises late last night and vowed that I would post about them in the morning. Fulfilling my side of this imaginary bargain, I’m featuring the Boston outfit’s new record Hunger For A Way Out, a record that almost sounds like a buried gem from late 80s/early 90s post punk heaven.
The guitar lines are sharp and innovative, the bass lines are sturdy and the vocal lines shift from lackadaisical to pointed, motivated. I can think of a few friends that will absolutely lose their marbles to this record, so I hope y’all are reading my blog and listening to this dang music. Makes me wish I could see them live! Damn you COVID!!
