CULTURE KIDS – SELF-TITLED LP (Make-A-Mess):
 
Those friendly neighborhood skaters in Culture Kids have not only built a quarter-pipe in the garage, they’ve also brewed up a goddamn great record—a whole album’s worth of raging, infectious hardcore honoring and exceeding their Southern California roots. Following a self-titled seven-inch and two split cassettes, this LP, their first release for Make-A-Mess, is fresh, pure, and clear in its intensity and focus. Their “CK” back patch is omnipresent at punk gigs in California, and one need only listen to this album to find out why.
 
Culture Kids came together five years ago, back when they all lived in Orange County, recording their half of the first split cassette before moving to San Francisco in 2008. A welcome anomaly in the scene ever since, they’re throwback in their hardcore sensibilities, channeling the careening fury of their skater forebears in JFA as well as the speedy, arresting fervor of early Bad Brains. One can hear tinges of the legendary OC punk compilation Beach Blvd. in there too, but the energy there is rendered darker and more menacing in Culture Kids’ able hands.
 
The 14 tunes documented herein, 18 minutes in all, are lent a psychedelic, reverberating edge by their good friend Ty Segall, who recorded the album with the band and helped them mix it with Eric Bauer. Rarely can a hardcore band captivate and excite over the course of an LP, but Culture Kids have done a bang-up job of it, and in timeless fashion to boot. Now listeners everywhere can experience the joyous intensity of a CK gig in the comfort of home, with minimal risk of broken furniture or neighbor complaints—just depends how loud you crank it.
