Saccharine Trust - Paganicons 12"


Sold Out

Label: SST

Too early to be post-hardcore but too uncommon for any simple classification, this Southern California quartet doesn't try to create a blizzard of noise – they go at it more artfully, but with equally ear-wrenching results. On Paganicons, singer Joaquin Milhouse Brewer tunelessly barks lyrics (as in "We Don't Need Freedom" and "A Human Certainty"); the music is loudly abrasive, but with spaces and dynamics largely uncommon to the genre. One of Kurt Cobain's favorite albums of all time.
