No Tongue - 2013 - Body + Mind

No Tongue is a punk band from Oakland. Body + Mind is their second release, courtesy of Kyeo Speaks. They play a brand of hardcore that is hard to pin down in terms of genre adherence. They take the spirit of hardcore and turn into things like spacey jams (Dwanta) and an almost country wind down (Sad Country) and an all out attack that takes no prisoners (Shop Talk). All the way through on Body + Mind No Tongue charge their way through punk as they know it. No Tongue churns a myriad of influences in a blender with a heavy helping of hardcore and serves it up raw. If you like your punk with a genre hopping, experimental side to it, No Tongue's Body + Mind will serve well.
