Jade Helm: Days Gone 7″

Magnificent post-punk from a band fronted by Phoenix-based guitarist/vocalist Jackie Cruz. The A-side is dark and driving like Joy Division, but the vocals switch from reserved murmuring to brash riot grrrl shouting from line to line. Really refreshing, energetic, and powerful, a blast of both gloom and sunshine, and it curiously ends with a brief sample of almost carousel-like music, from what I imagine is a faded old record found in a thrift store somewhere. B-side “I’ll Decide” is another ecstatically charged post-punk delight, much in the same vein. It’s worth mentioning that this record is currently available as a pre-order, and all proceeds will directly benefit Cruz, who is fighting cancer.
