"The early to mid-80’s New York underground produced a dark strain of No Wave-influenced post punk bands such as Sonic Youth, Rat At Rat R, and Live Skull—amongst countless other unknowns—whose brooding, paranoia-inducing sounds oozed like napalm across an already-decayed urban landscape. Baltimore, MD’s Quattracenta—a quartet featuring former members of The Uniform, Lo Moda, Piranha Pariah, and Home Recording Project—could have easily been one of those bands, as their sound is so spiritually akin, it’s frightening. That said, the band are no mere copyists and thrust a very modern take on to those old tropes. Their J. Robbins (Jawbox/Government Issue)-produced EP shows them honing their bewitching/repellent, mechanic/organic clang to great effect. A strong debut."
