MYSTIC INANE "Deep Creep" 7"
Rising from the ashes of insta-cult hardcore punk outfit Necro Hippies, New Orlean's Mystic Inane finally deliver on the promise of their two demo tapes. Switching singers from tape to tape, the vocals on the second demo seemed a bit too unrefined for my taste, but that was clearly just a temporary thing because they're more powerful and more effective on this 7", which also boasts their best recording quality to-date. Top it off with a re-recording of their best song from the first demo, "Deep Creep," and we have a winner! If you haven't heard Mystic Inane before, they take their modern brand of freaky Midwest 80s USHC and mix it with No Trend, doing the combination more than justice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
