Stream Big Ups Eighteen Hours Of Static

Last year, Big Ups, a clangorous DIY post-hardcore band from New York, started making some noise with a reportedly furious live show; we’ve posted their “Wool” and their “Goes Black” video. And now they’ve recorded their debut album Eighteen Hours Of Static, half an hour of intense, tough, unstable old-school underground-rock chest-beating. The album is too feral to belong to what’s being called the emo revival, but like the bands that belong to that scene, Big Ups use time-honored, half-forgotten guitar-rock moves to find something like catharsis. The album pretty much rules, and you can listen to the whole thing below.
