AUTISTIC YOUTH "IDLE MINDS" LP
This is the long awaited second album from the hardworking PDX youngsters, following up their classic "Landmine Beach" LP as well as singles on Black Water, Rock Bottom, Taken By Surprise and more. Driving, melodic punk/hardcore (but NOT "melodic hardcore" if you get the distinction) with dark, swirling undercurrents. Sounding like a cross between Portland, Southern California and Copenhagen, you could compare this to bands like Observers/Red Dons, No Hope For The Kids, Articles Of Faith, Reagan Youth, The Wipers, Adolecscents, etc. Vinyl version includes download.
