Label: Good to Die Records
Release date: January 24, 2012
Brokaw aren't so much into melody, which isn't a bad thing if you're looking to have your face rocked off. Their debut LP is full of big, noisy riffs, buzzing, fuzzy bass lines and the aggressive, mostly-shouted vocals of Mike Henderson. Brokaw have their noise rock sound nailed: Repetitive, mid-tempo riffs mixed with a bit of angular, experimental free-for-all, just the way The Melvins or The Jesus Lizard like it. And like both of those bands, Brokaw are best experience live, where they can rattle your rib cage at bludgeoning volumes.
