Hailing from the post hardcore capital of the world, Edmonton, Book of Caverns know how to bring the jams.  This tape and these five songs constantly find themselves being played on my tape player as I ride my bike from point A to B.  With their emotional vocalist and their musicianship they are sure to become one of your favorite bands.

Starting off Canada has been pumping out some rad bands as of late and Mahria is one of them.  This is Emotional Hardcore at its finest, a lot of shouted vocals with noodly and twinkly bits spread throughout the songs.  I’m always stoked on female vocals because female fronted bands don’t pop up that often.  I’d say that they sound like a harder and louder Suffix (Chicago).  Save Yourself has got to be the best track on the record, it follows a instrumental track, and sounds like one big meltdown especially at the end of the track.  I found myself feeling uncomfortable, which is always a good feeling.

 

I just ordered this tape today and I’m stoked on the tape artwork, clear case with an imprint of a forest.  Love it when bands and labels go the distance to make sweet looking releases.
