I feel like Kill Conrad's earlier releases may have been sent this way before with little reception. Their newest, however, warrants a bit of attention. This quick 7", Work & Class bustles with melodic punk/hardcore (emphasis on the punk) that reminds me a bit of the older, unrefined and raw-prod.

This quick 7", Work & Class bustles with melodic punk/hardcore (emphasis on the punk) that reminds me a bit of the older, unrefined and raw-produced No Trigger (fellow Massheads) stuff, though way less indebted to Strike Anywhere. This is definitely some stripped-down, no-frills stuff with a sure scrappiness. There's a few glimmers of something more promising coming up every now and then (various tempo changes in "More Peter North"). I also like the more aggressive kick that opens Side B with the slightly street punk/Kid Dynamite-crossed "Underthrown."

A fairly solid release exposing Kill Conrad's musical chops and such.

More Peter North is my favorite track

Fans of this band also liked Neutral Milk Hotel. Seriously, that's what it says.

This shit aint half bad... it's really got the 'they'll put out something gnarly in about 2 years' feel to it... if that makes any sense.

These gentlemen are pretty fucking rad.
