WELCOME TO 2534. "2534" is the third full length by Tacoma,WA veterans Criminal Code. The northwest four piece has always kept a well balanced variety of sounds in their arsenal. From the gloomy depressing sounds of The WIPERS to the frantic speed induced pop of HUSKER DU, 2534 is more focused with layers and a dreamy undertone. This album flows with infectious leads and bouncy rhythms familiar to the UK sounds of WIRE and THE CURE. The vocals and guitars are a bit cleaner then previously before but still abrasive and loses no urgency. The album flows seamlessly and at times nostalalgic to the melancholy of the eighties without trapping you in a time capsule. Artwork by Justin Gallago.
