Heart Break Beat
HBB02 - 2006
New Orleans’ Redbeards debut EP was sadly also the band’s swansong as they broke up not long after hurricane Katrina. This EP is seven tracks of alternately tuneful and gut wrenching punk. Redbeards catchy off kilter verses and choruses conjure up early Archers of Loaf and the unapologetically loud guitar cascades recall Dinosaur Jr’s more unhinged moments. Razorcake magazine said, “This New Orleans based band caught me off guard. This is easily one of the best releases I\'ve heard in a while” In addition the EP made one of 75orless.com’s year end top 10 best records for 2006.
