Mastering Traitre “Dors Bien” on Les âmes d’Atala.

Taken from American Oi:

“In my previous review I already warned you guys that not one, but two Traitre seven inches will hit the streets this March. Where the first one is a two-track single, the second release, “Dors Bien”, is a full-blown EP with four brand new tracks! LADA Records, who also brought us the first two Traitre 45’s in 2014, has this slab of wax set for release on March 15th and comes in a total of 500 copies.

I already mentioned in my review on the “Humain En Vue” b/w “Un Pays À Détruire” single that Traitre delivered their best work to date. Since that 7” is coming out two weeks prior to “Dors Bien” I wasn’t exactly telling a lie, but I definitely think they top that single with this release! Because where “Humain En Vue” stood out with superb melodies, the “Dors Bien” EP stands out through sheer melancholy.

With hints of Manchester-alike post-punk mixed in their sound, there’s an apocalyptic feel to Traitre’s blend of Oi! and streetpunk that strongly reminds me of Criminal Damage and Blitz with a small touch of Warsaw / Joy Division to it. It’s funny how this band can merge completely different influences into each release, but still sound 100% Traitre. They amaze me with every single, EP or demo that has been released so far and “Dors Bien” is no exception!

Therefor I truly hope that Traitre will hit the studio soon again to record their first ever full-length album, because these guys sound more ready than ever! Don’t miss out on these guys and pick up “Dors Bien” and the single for Build Me A Bomb Records the moment they come out, you won’t regret it!”

Mastering Sissy “Gave Birth To A Mum” EP.

“Limited to 299 Copies with insert and download code. Dublin’s Sissy release their debut EP ‘Gave Birth to a Mum’ and it’s a stunning opening salvo. The raw and stripped back garage style recording and production just adds to the excitement. The music twists and bounces whilst the lyrics are modern femminist manifestos. The sound mixes Sleater Kinney and Julie Ruin and could have easily been on Kill Rock Stars if recorded twenty years ago. One of the four tracks is a Blitz song ‘Attack’. The lyrics include “Freedom to fight / Your freedom to choose”. It probably wasn’t a pro choice song to begin with but they’ve appropriated it into their repertoire.”
