How does one describe the Coltranes? They are a band that has routinely defied categorization, making the scene scratch our collective head while curling into a half smile and making a contented "hum". We struggled to think of what we could compare their first few LPs to. But why expend the effort? We know how the music makes us feel: freaky, dirty, deranged, cynical. We know how the music presents itself to us: unhinged, uncompromising, unpredictable, ugly.

Each of the first three LPs found the Coltranes streamlining their style, becoming less moody and more aggressive, less dynamic and more noisy, less dark and more ugly. This EP continues with this trend, being the band's most immediate, rocking, and discordant work yet. Perhaps this is some melting pot of USHC and 90's noise rock influences.....but I prefer to just think of it as "freak music, by freaks, for freaks".

You may remember these songs from their 2014 tour tape, please enjoy them on a one-time pressing 7" vinyl record.
