Less Life is a 3-piece band from New Jersey featuring members of Black Kites. This one-sided 12” is their first record and it’s quite impressive. Musically they sound like they are influenced by the 90s “post-Hardcore” scene. They sometimes remind me of a stripped down Coalesce; I sort of find the same darkness and relentless aggression on this record. The delivery is primitive and almost messy, you barely have time to figure out what’s going on and start headbanging when they’ve already moved on to a different rhythm. I really like the guitar parts, they are heavy with some hypnotic notes thrown in there, not unlike Breather Resist or Deadguy. On CLEAR/BLACK SWIRLED vinyl out of 161 copies.
