like ruidosa inmundicia or peacebastard or f minus also female main vocals, also great like world peace would be (but it can't be done i was told). as an additional short hint what you get musically: still the type of fast hardcore with a big punk edge LBAL is known for.
now off to the record: again a great combination of layout and the overall concept of the 12".
the style of the artwork looks pretty awful to me BUT it fits good with the reoccuring theme of media control in the usa. the cover art is a painting by the artist dug minkler with the title" not so remote control" and he even has a quote on the obi stripe on which the lyrics are printed.
the vinyl itself is a one sided 12" in clear vinyl with a print on the b side to top it all off. the clue here: its printed so that you can look at it when the record gets played. fetzig!!!
there's also a 7" version of the release also self released by the band which i own but the nerd in me told me to get this version nevertheless.
as a last comment it would have made more sense to me to do the jacket as a gatefold instead of cutting it in half but perhaps money was an issue.see my point below:
