Top 7"s of 2010


2010 wasn't a good one for the 7", I feel like only bought a few dozen new ones this year with not much stick, but here's a few that grabbed my willy:

1. The Sleaze - Crush w/ PCP
Thank fucking GOD for this record. Been waiting for the return of the Sleaze since the monumental SMOKIN FUCKIN CIGS ep on Fashionable Idiotos out a few years ago. SO here they are again with two more TOP retardo slop drop speedy freaky anthemz. It's been agreed that PCP truly IS the b-side to Smokinfukincigs. Out on Leather Bar recs, only 300 of these guys so hit up (leatherbar * gmail * com) to shoot up the skuzz. Rest in nicnicnic.

2. Urban Blight - Total War
Undeniably UB is the King Kong of HardCore 2010. If these 5 tracks don't make you do tha step, I really think there's no hope for ya. The key track on here is 'SOCIAL ORDER', the two minute mid-tempo blitzkreg, that plows through the warzone without a scratch. I just ripped this one and I think it sounds better than any I've heard...320KBS of STOMP baby...

3. Homostupids - Night Deacon
Arguably the Homo's best material yet. But it's a no-brainer that this guy had the best one liner of the year...thanks to our pal the bus driver. A 2010 Classic. Brought to you by FashionableIdiots. I guess there's new 12" coming soon!!!!! Plz play Chicago!..or somewhere soon...

4. Vile Gash - S/T
Yow! A true modern classic. When I first heard this one I most excited to the re-recording of that track 'Scum'...that riff...is the catchiest thing ever. Was a little bummed when Unfit wasn't redone (my fave track from the demos), but I will keep my hopes high for a future release maybe...though the new track 'Incapable' gives off a similar slowdeath, masochistic vibe. SICK. This thing is recorded flawlessly too- More scorch in the vox, with the drums in a pummeling d-beat throughout, and a chest-rattling bass that leaves you gasping by the end. Perfecto.

5. Men's Interest - More War

6. Condominium - Gag

7. Crazy Spirit - S/T
Beautiful, catchy, and destructive. One of the freshest. Rip from tha ICDT

8. Schizophasia - S/T II

the urban blight rip is super distorted - maybe that's how its sposed to sound - or maybe you cooked the levels a little bit? found lots of great stuff through this site so thanks alot.
