Auxiliary Mammals- (DEMO) (2014)
While less than 15 minutes, this introduction to the band showcases everything I hope they remain being about. The vocalist does a great job throughout scream-rambling in a way that feels off-kilter but not out of sync. Meanwhile the band shows its influences like Arab on Radar without being cookie-cutter copies; they have their own sound all figured out and it works. Tracks like "Banshee" and "Halo" show they can handle abrupt, immediacy with tact, and really the entire album flows without a single moment I feel should have been left out.
I know Auxiliary Mammals has a 7" coming out soon, so support them and pick it up when it drops. More importantly, let hope they get around to giving us a proper debut album and don't drop off like so many other "potential" bands (I'm looking at you Gila Monster).
