The description of Le Face’s full-length debut on Dead Beat Records’ website mentions the Urinals more than once. I don’t really hear it. Those Urinals are way more melodic than these guys are capable of.
Not like I’m saying it’s a negative point for Le Face.
What I hear is a toned-down, less dense version of labelmates the Daily Void. Or maybe, at times, a less poppy, more thrashy version of the Intelligence. These guys stand on their own though. Great, thrashed-up garage punk.
And I totally thought these guys were French because of their name and the vocalist’s delivery. Turns out they’re from LA.
