14 Songs, 21 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though it might not want to be pigeonholed as such, Sacramento’s Trash Talk is a hardcore revivalist band. Like Keith Morris’ band Off!, Trash Talk's songs are allocated bursts of old-school punk that play no longer than a standard fistfight. In fact, its 14-song 2012 album 119 lasts for a total of 22 minutes. At two minutes and 31 seconds, the sludgy “Blossom & Burn” is the longest song here (and it boasts guest vocals by Hodgy Beats and Tyler, the Creator). Conversely, “For The Lesser Good” is a thrash-punk attack that only lasts 27 seconds. Claiming such influences as early Bad Brains, Black Flag, and '80s skate punk, Trash Talk recalls a time when most of the guys at all-ages shows wore shaved heads, hand-me-down flannels, 501s, and tattered Chuck Taylor high-tops. But as the title of the pummeling “F**k Nostalgia” suggests, it’s not like these guys are singing about Reaganomics or new wave preppies. Their lyrics are rooted in railing against 21st-century injustices. In “Uncivil Disobedience,” Lee Spielman hoarsely screams: “Occupy the streets!”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Trash Talk is still exceptional.

Despite that the track featuring Tyler,The Creator and Hodgy Beats was somewhat of an experiment for Trash Talk,the band still hits home,with a continuation of their spastic punk sound,without the sludgy element present in Eyes & Nines and their self-titled.Trash Talk still acknowledges their roots and predecessors,regardless of their newfound sound that could easily blend with Hip-Hop.I don't see 119 as any sort of regression,but a progression and maturity of their sound.And with that,I hope that this band may prosper in upcoming years!
