It’s Casual

It’s Casual
The New Los Angeles
Friendly Hills Recording Company

I love getting random CD’s sent to me that turn out to be fantastic records I might have missed out on. While this is the third release by the It’s Casual, this is the first I’ve actually heard of them. The band gets tagged with Black Flag comparisons, and while that works fairly well, I’d venture out a bit further and say they actually sound like early Rollins Band as played by Black Flag. It’s actually more like a harsher Rollins fronting a band that listened to a lot of Bl’ast! and wanted to mix that with The Melvins. As mentioned, this is their third record, and “The New Los Angeles” is a concept album of sorts, all songs are about that particular city and it’s police, buses and more. Hard, loud and fucking excellent is my overall opinion of this entire album, I dig the music and the harsh vocals work great. The fact that this was made by a duo and not a full band is some impressive stuff. Check it out if you miss your SST, you should like it.

Visit the band on their Myspace page. I’m not entirely sure if this has actually been released yet, I was unable to find an online store with it… please comment or send me an email if you see it anywhere so I can update this.
