Fair Trades and Farewells (Level Plane)
By: Mike SOS
Hot Cross is an East Coast outfit whose latest six-track endeavor challenges the listener to allow the band's potent juxtaposing of indie rock and post-hardcore to seep inside your system. With a staunch DIY approach (its label, Level Plane, is run by drummer Greg Drudy), and an expansive repertoire of D.C. hardcore, early So Cal punk, and NYC noisecore to choose from, Hot Cross keep your ears on their toes by throwing in tasty guitar licks and impassioned vocal melodies over frenetic rhythms, making sure that your full attention is paid. Captivating and thought provoking, fans of At the Drive In, Fugazi, and any thinking man's hardcore outfit will soak this one up like a sponge.
