CBH - Get Me Fired

Mastering CBH “Get Me Fired” on 4490 Records.

“From the same crew that brought you LifeLock and Snaggletooth (aka most of your favorite Singapore bands) comes their newest badass rock’n’roll output: Charged CBH.
You can probably guess, based on the name and cover art, that this is classic UK82 style. And like their other bands, this shit rocks HARD, complete with catchy powerhouse riffing, high charge drumming, and a total badass swagger that can’t be learned, you either got it or you don’t. GREAT RECORD!!!!!”

 

Daily Ritual

Mastering Daily Ritual “S/T” on 4409 and Sabotage Records.

“Hailing from Singapore, Daily Ritual give us an 8 track album of infectious, melodic, political punk. Musically this is in the same vein as Red Dons and Masshysteri, while the lyrics to songs with titles like “Surveillance” (We got no place to hide from their eyes), “Desperation In A Police State” (This is a police state / We hold your passports / Your access to freedom…) and “The Siren” (When the sound of siren starts to wail / You know they’re coming here for you) are inspired by life living in a totalitarian state. This is just a great LP, music to make your heart race and lyrics to engage your mind; this is punk rock!

Europe, buy it here!

 

Daily Ritual

Mastering Daily Ritual – Depressed State on 4490 Records & Contergan Punk.

“Hafiz, the man of the golden touch. While Pazahora will probably always be my favorite Singaporean band, everything Hafiz touches is gold, and this is no exception. Daily Ritual is the newest Hafiz band and seems to be taking southeast Asia by storm, seeing as this debut EP sold out instantly just in their region of the world, and relatively few copies made it out west.

Daily Ritual play a standard style of catchy, melodic punk rock, in line with such bands as The Observers, Red Dons, Autistic Youth, the Estranged, etc. The melodies are memorable, the songs are catchy, the record is fucking good all around.

If you are someone that actually cares about punk on a worldwide scale, this is a good record to scope to hear something that’s currently exciting and relevant in southeast Asia. This is one of the better (and more popular) releases to come out of southeast Asia, pick it up and discover what the punks are dancing to on the other side of the world.”
