under pressure Black Bile (mini-CD, £8.25)label: Escape Artist Records
With little rest or respite since their acclaimed "Come Clean" full-length, Winnipeg's Under Pressure continue to blaze a musical path that honours the hardc*re punk archetype and aesthetic. "Black Bile" is a condensed and bitter statement of disillusionment and decay, taking cues from a range of genre traditions and colouring them with a dark rock and roll sound. Despite their bleak outlook, Under Pressure provides hope in a musical culture that is rife with mediocrity and insincerity.
