Fresh Stream



Scared To See A Doctor is the second 7” from NYC’s Goosebumps, out now on Katorga Works, and takes the band to a whole new level. The new record takes the scummy hardcore of I Hate My Body and pushes it into weirder territory. The label draws comparison to such acts as Fang, Flipper, and the Butthole Surfers. All fair reference points, emphasizing the focus on creating hardcore both noisy and strange. The guitar tone, at times, sounds reminiscent of SQRM, but replaces the misanthropy with some great piss-you-off lyrics falling somewhere between confrontational and absurd. Combined with some catchy riffs and trashy production full of feedback and guitar clatter, Scared To See A Doctor features Goosebumps’ best tracks yet. The 7” is a 2014 essential from the hyper-productive NYC hardcore community (the La Misma 7” being another that immediately comes to mind). The full EP is available for download courtesy of icoulddietomorrow.
