Low Culture - Evil 7"

Drunken Sailor / Cut The Cord That... (2013)

I couldn't be more thrilled to have 2 more songs from the band that has put out one of my favorite records so far this year, Low Culture. There's almost no way that the Low Culture full length isn't in my top 10 this year, unless the 2nd half of 2013 is poised to be something magical. This 7" carries on the same tradition. It's a Europe only 7" that was released to coincide with a trip the band took overseas, though I have seen it in a fair amount of US distros as well.

The songs are fast, they're catchy, they have all the hooks and melodies right where you want them. I often lament the fact that the Marked Men aren't a full time band any more, but keep giving me Low Culture and more records from The Novice and I'll probably soften my stance on that real quick.

I also have to mention how much I love the artwork for this 7". Sure, it's certainly not the first Bad Brains spoof I've ever seen, but it's absolutely the best one. It makes me laugh to myself almost every time I see. I even bought a shirt with the same design. Go Low Culture!

  1. I'm excited I'm heading to see all those bands play the next couple of days of Chaos In Tejas in Austin, TX. The Marked Men, The Novice, and Low Culture on two different nights but for only $12 per show. I'm psyched! Agreed on the 7" and needing more!
