Expire 'Pretty Low' B9R211

Pretty Low lashes out like a laceration—it's a festering blister that always feels like it's been pulled too early, its wounds given too little time to heal. In the time since Expire released their fierce debut, 2012's Pendulum Swings, something happened to the Midwest hardcore band that's resulted in material that's decidedly sharper, more pointed and somehow meaner than before, sounding looser and even less caged. Their approach is still traditionally concise, but this time around, Josh Kelting's unfiltered lyrical barbs and Zach Dear's riffs take just a little longer to dig in and take hold, exploding with scathing juggernauts that lay emotional waste for 24 minutes.
