Careen - "Spit Choke"

Bellingham, WA based Careen is set to release a new EP this Friday. The first single off the EP, "Spike Choke," is an absolute monster track. It's a mixture of post-hardcore, indie, and experimental rock. It's loud and raw rock music, filled with fuzz and crunch that just pummels a listener. It sounds like a long lost release off Dischord or SST Records without sounding dated. To me "Spike Choke" sounds like if Fugazi made an album with Henry Rollins. It just goes between a plodding monolith to completely out of control throughout its three minute length.

You can listen to "Spit Choke" below. Careen Love Health is due out June 24. For more on Careen, check out the band on Bandcamp and Instagram. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
