Culture Abuse - 2013 - The Day Dreams Of Nothing

Culture Abuse are a five piece punk rock band from Santa Rosa & San Francisco. The Day Dreams Of Nothing is their debut EP. Culture Abuse features members of Defeater, All Teeth, Strike To Survive, and Dead To Me and plays an off kilter brand of hardcore punk. These songs are obviously rooted in hardcore punk but they come out wonky and fuzzy, drenched in fuzz, beer and weed owing a debt to the Melvins. I want to call it mysterious guy hardcore but that's lazy and derivative which this album isn't. If you like your hardcore with some strangeness to it, Culture Abuse's The Day Dreams Of Nothing serves well.
