Guming – “Overripe” LP
Tense noise punk from a four-piece based in Richmond, Virginia. Their debut full length album is an ear-opening insight into troubled minds at work and play. Discordant anti-riffs twist around songs that groove and lurch with unpredictable energy, all the while providing the platform for the vocalist’s intense troubled-mind ranting that magnetically draws you in. At the same time, you’re left with a distinct sense of this is not someone I ever want to meet in the flesh… Enjoyably creepy, and nerve shredding… in a constructive way. Good work.
