'Missing Link' 7'' by Sore Subjects

By Kevin Toomey
Release date: April 14, 2012
7'': Surfin' Ki Records
Rating: 4/5

Sore Subjects is back with four new songs on its second 7'', Missing Link, released earlier this year. It’s obvious on Missing Link and from the band's recent live shows, that the Sore Subjects is really finding their own sound and style. The band is playing tighter than ever and somehow managed to pull off an even more lo-fi sound than last year's self-titled 7''. A-side tracks, “Obscene Calls” and “Wearing You Down,” are both reminiscent of the Marked Men and the Busy Signals, and have made their way onto my summer party playlists. The last two songs continue in the same vein, although they lose some of the momentum from the first side. But, this 7'' still good enough to earn 4/5 stars. Purchase the Missing Link 7'' on Sore Subjects' Bandcamp page, and stream it here:
