“Right now, the biggest band in hardcore might be Turnstile, the fast and vicious but deceptively tuneful Baltimore crew whose members also play in bands like Angel Du$t and Praise. Last year, the band released the brawl-starting Nonstop Feeling album, and they’ve since joined metal label Roadrunner. But before they get started with Roadrunner, they’re releasing an intense, bruising, fun-as-hell four-song 7″ called Move Thru Me. The band recorded the EP with producer Will Yip, and it ends with a cover of “Fuck Me Blind,” a song from the DC post-hardcore band Give. – Stereogum
