Life’s Question – Self-titled LP

For their latest 12″ offering the versatile Chicago five-piece band have shifted over to Flatspot Records from Triple B. End result is a six track mini album that, just like before, is as hard, heavy and aggressive as your average modern hardcore act, but with added knock ’em dead musical virtuosity and a knack for an addictive melodic chorus. Citing influences from Faith No More, No Warning, Van Halen, and Fats Domino; while also steering widely clear of commercial ‘rock-show’ clich├ęs. The nearest comparison that comes to my mind would be Fucked Up – as in, progressive and melodic musicianship that retains a hard edge. But, in keeping with the labels that release their records, Life’s Question are harder and chunkier, more along the lines of Judge, Sheer Terror and Poison Idea. Further elevated when guitarist Abby Rhine brings in her soaring, clean vocals. And then the songs really light-up. Expertly produced by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Drain, etc).
