NYC’s EKULU have finally extended their 5-track “discography” with a proper full length, and it’s just been made available online via Bandcamp and Cash Only Records!
EKULU features Candy guitarist Michael “Cheddar” Quirk, and members of Ecostrike and Glory.
Through the entire album, Ekulu lock in on a bouncy midtempo groove, hammering it over and over. The bass tone is supremely ugly. The guitars go into blazing-solo mode whenever it makes sense. The drums go heavy on the floor toms. If you’ve got love in your heart for Madball or the Cro-Mags, then this record is deeply satisfying on an almost cellular level. – Stereogum
