HUMANS possess an unbridled punk fury and a penchant for the absurd, with songs clocking in under 20 seconds and describing glimpses of humanity’s most bizarre thoughts. Their debut album, Are Dead, was released purposefully on cassette tape to capture all of the slimy bass riffage weaving in and out of the blasting percussion on true analog goodness. All of the warbles from out of tune guitar strings being bent, beneath the tape hiss and amplifier static of DIY gear make this album a true punk rock gem.
