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
