• Image of THE BRASS - Desperation EP

With one boot firmly planted in an urban setting of industrial decline and the other kicking through a landscape of desperation and loss, THE BRASS deliver 4 tracks of some of the best oi! to come out of NYC in a long time. Picking up where their Rugged Cross demo left off, this bruising debut EP takes everything you like about the savage growls of early Boston hardcore and combines it with the tough, dark melodies of French oi! bands like CAMERA SILENS. Clay’s unrestrained vocals compliment a brutish soundtrack that is appropriately unhinged, on edge and ready to pull you out of your safe apartment and throw you into the dark streets of New York City.

*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
