Contraszt! Records presents: STREET EATERS!

“Blood::Muscles::Bones” comes on the heels of several years of relentless global touring by this Bay Area band called STREET EATERS! Recorded during a heatwave in Portland, Oregon, what went to tape reflects the intense reality the band has been living—a two-seat compact truck crammed with multiple amps, drums, and empty coffee cups; dense basement shows in the Midwest that turned into swamps; shows in haunted German schools-turned-squats, medieval French catacombs, smoke filled Japanese practice rooms, and abandoned Hungarian aluminum factories. In the middle of all the wildness and urgency, STREET EATERS kept honing their sound, tenaciously driving inward towards the darkened heart of the sun. “Blood::Muscles::Bones” shows this focus, reflecting a leaner, meaner STREET EATERS. Cutting deep into the band’s sonic guts, the album’s ten tracks are bloody, sinewy, jagged and sincere to the bone.

Few records manage to translate exertion like Blood::Muscles::Bones. From “Reverse” to “Comets”, Street Eaters sweat feels present on the two-inch tape. It’s a record that gets physical with you. Partially owed to its inpecable sequencings, the album deserves to be played in full by the listener at home and the band on the road. There is an exhaustion that comes with Blood::Muscles::Bones felt by the band as their vocals are never overly-practiced, but left bare and prone to cracks and trembles that come with a live set. This exhaustion is thrust upon the listener to a point that it transports you to whatever dank basement or living room they are in, full of smelly teenagers stacked atop one another in a dancing, moshing frenzy. It’s prepared for every romanticised night that lies on the road ahead.

Repping truewave punk, Street Eaters’ Blood::Muscles::Bones is the sound of phsyiological punk music; with the tightening of sinews and burning of fatigue, Street Eaters dig deeper within because in the end those capacities will be all they own.

The record comes on golden vinyl in a beautiful thick, three-coloured letterpress foldout cover with extra lyric sheet and downloadcode.
