Some love from the Boston Hassle’s year end list exception. “The Thorns” Ep was released last May via Hozac Records.
"I usually wouldn’t include a 3-song EP in a year-end list, but this exception is based on their having bowled me over at the HOMEGROWN 4 fest (November in Cambridge). These Philly beasts menace trippily with an unlikely-but-great combination of 60s/current garage psych, 80s UK post-punk, and some early Sonic Youth and Cramps grit thrown in. Don’t miss ‘em!"
