Released: December 15, 2020
Before calling it quits, Mystic Inane released this four track EP in late 2020. It’s basically just early 80s American punk (think pre-metal Black Flag and Circle Jerks or JFA) that leans to the somewhat angular side à la the Minutemen. Yes, it’s been done before, ad nauseum even, but there is something to be said for doing it well and doing it with conviction and Mystic Inane scores points on those fronts. They don’t build much on their influences, but this is, while not essential, still a good listen for old and young punks alike.
