Album at a glance: Hurt Russell – Down // Cruisin’ For A Bruisin’

Hurt Russell - Down // Cruisin' For A Bruisin'

Hurt Russell’s first real coming out party is this two song digital EP. It’s about 7 minutes of sludge-phyche that really defines a band that is in actuallity pretty hard to define with words.

“Down” is a slow burning song with sandpaper vocal scratches laid across it. It’s not long before the fuzz guitars kick in and make those vocals a murky afterthought. Lead singer Trevor Rowe howls through the chorus while the aggressive backbeat and squealing guitars gel. The more thrashey “Cruisin’ For A Bruisin'” shows the band no less loose but more uptempo. It’s like punk rock for the kids who drink craft beer. Vaulted comparisons would do them no justice, the band has a unique sound making them one of the more interesting bands in the area.
