Righteous Jams – Business As Usual

31 Oct

Righteous Jams Business As Usual Abacus Boston band Righteous Jams’ latest album brought me back to the 80’s when it sometimes felt like there were X’d hands everywhere. The music here is straight edge hardcore. Old Boston-style straight edge hardcore to be more exact, with a heavy dose of late 80’s NYHC thrown in for […]

Garage music with decent production, they’ve made me listen to a lo-fi rock band again when I had sworn off the genre after […]
