stream Coarse’s EP ft. The Armed, Street Sects & Hash Gordon


As mentioned, Coarse is the new-ish collaborative project of hardcore musicians Ryan Knowles and Brandon Gallagher, and their upcoming EP Cut and Preserved sees them going in more ambitious, experimental directions than ever before without losing their sense of pure heaviness. The new EP features remixes of songs from their 2018 EP I with a different guest on each one, as well as the absolutely crushing new song “The People of the State of New York vs. Coarse.” It’s a killer record all around and it’s far from your average “remix EP.”

The title track, “Cut and Preserved,” is a rework of “No Heart” that features hardcore oddballs The Armed, and this version keeps the intensity of the original intact while adding a noisy, almost psychedelic quality. “Untitled” is a rework of “Only Death” featuring Leo Ashline of Street Sects, and it ends up sounding not too far removed from that band’s industrial punk. And finally, the EP ends with a remix of “Shed” by Precious Death that features rock-friendly rapper Hash Gordon, and if you like anything from Death Grips to Dalek to Denzel Curry, you should hear this one.

The EP officially drops Friday (8/23) via 6131 Records (pre-order), and we’re premiering a full stream right here:
