Here at the tail end of what we once referred to as civilized times, Philadelphia boiled up as the new hub of American noise rock. Whether by chance, or by design, one can only guess, but the results are in, the votes are tallied, it’s certain, and Fight Amp are the reigning torch bearers, new beacons of disharmony for 2015. This new 7” on Reptilian, part 4 of our Keystone Noise Series, carves another notch into Fight Amp’s developing legacy fresh on the heels of Constantly Off, the new album on Brutal Panda. The cover art is a dizzying homage to Sub Pop. “No Trace” is a riffy and melodic, tight and precise jam that recalls Tar or Quicksand’s better moments, while “Hide Your Teeth” is a gritty pummeler showcasing the band’s high/low dual vocal split and propulsive heaviness. This band is on fire. Catch them now.
