LIKE JUNK-The Host (A Review)
Like who? Like what? LIKE JUNK, that’s who! Discordant and disjointed. Catchy and cacophonic. Dark and deep. Hypnotic and heavy. Frantic and furious. Throbbing and tuneful. Brooding and beautiful. That’s what! This 4 track E.P is a hurricane that blows away the stale and stagnant cobwebs and spiders of the manufactured music scene’s of today. Like Junk’s music defies categorization, but if you wanna stick it in a neat’n’tidy box and label it, then…. Post-Punk it is! though they have been described as “almost indescribable” and “ridiculously unique”
Like Junk come from Perth in Western Australia and have been in existence since 2007. The Host EP compiles tracks from a couple of singles they released in 2011 and is available from Scotland’s DIY Independent record label NewtOwn Products. This is impressive and powerfull stuff!! And well worth checking out. An album The Creatures Voice is gonna be released later this year.
