Jumpercable EP

Jumpercable play like a modernized Minor Threat, with a fast-as-fuck rhythm section, chugging guitars and vocals more barked than sung. Nine songs speed by in less than ten minutes, so if you really want to get everything this band have to offer you need to listen a few times. Tracks like "Real Problems” show a group that have a well-honed sense of melody, even if it is buried beneath a barrage of speed and volume. Gang vocals are well used and they are most certainly welcome. Lead singer Spencer’s delivery belies the content of his words, which are more poetic and introspective than his desperate barking would lead you to believe. This is a promising debut from a young band and if they stick around, I’m sure they’re going to do great things. (Independent)
