Khiis – “Bezoar” LP
The debut 12″ from Oakland’s Khiis thankfully gets a UK release on the ever-dependable La Vida Es Un Mus label. Following on from the popular Saboor 7″ EP from last year – vigorous, riff-based, hardcore punk, played with an abundance of conviction, energy and attitude. Location, location etc – sharing an allegiance with neighbours such as Talk Is Poison, Punch, Replica, No Statik, and more recently Torso, too. An important 9-track mini-album, essential for followers of buzzin’ new hardcore (for the hardcore).
