In stock now at Sorry State: Sial: S/T 12” (La Vida Es Un Mus) I’ve been hearing quite a lot of chatter about this debut LP from Singapore’s Sial, and when I first put it on I could immediately hear why… sometimes when I put on a record I think to myself that this is the sound of right now, the sound that I’ll think of when I remember this era of punk. I suppose that could sound like a slight—like I’m implying Sial are unoriginal or derivative—but I actually mean it in exactly the opposite way… Sial don’t sound precisely like anything that’s come before, and they combine their various influences in a way that wouldn’t (or maybe couldn’t?) have been done before this very historical moment. I hear lots of threads coming together here… the catchy, vicious punk of Criaturas, the darker, more apocalyptic (but still lightly campy) vibe of Blazing Eye, the progressivism of Una Bestia Incontrolable, and the ear-splitting production of EEL. Like I said, the elements themselves are familiar, but there’s something about the way that they come together that feels really exciting, original, and of the moment. It’s as if you’d always loved both ice cream and apple pie and then someone put the two of them together on one plate and just blew your fucking mind. If you’ve been following the various strains of forward-thinking hardcore on the La Vida Es Un Mus label this LP feels, in some respects, like a kind of denouement, or at least the synthesis of a lot of threads of thought and development. And, moreover, it is an absolutely exhilarating listen. Highly recommended. #sial #lavidaesunmus #punk #punkrecords #recordstores #hardcorepunk
