Texas Platters: Summer Breeze

Eschewing hardcore punk's tiresome tough guy histrionics, local trio Resent rages with abandon, specializing in spazzy outbursts with a propensity for sonic experimentation.

Resent's unconventionality manifests on B-side highlight "Rider, Stage Plot, Ego," where Jacob Saheb’s molasses guitar string bends and discordant harmonic breakdown demonstrates power sans power chords. ***
