2012’s been over for a few days now, so it’s probably safe to say we’re the last people to get our year-end best-of lists out there.  So if you feel like reading ANOTHER list of album titles jotted down in a blind panic of ‘what the hell came out this year?,’ why not make it this one?

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4th, 2012

I’m likin’ the hell outta this new DIRECT APPROACH demo tape.  The SCHOOL JERKS/URBAN BLIGHT comparison seems pretty dead-on to me, so I’m not gonna tax my brain trying to come up with anything better.

Toronto’s killin’ it these days.

cantrelate:

In case any of you followers didn’t know (which is not at all likely) I play bass in a hardcore band. This is our new 4-song tape, recorded by our friend andy who plays guitar Total Trash. From the 5 billion listens I’ve given it, it sounds like the snottiness of School Jerks, with the recording quality and stompy bits of Urban Blight. So I’m pretty happy with it. Anyways if you wanna support DIY Toronto hardcore you know what to do.
