Dead Best takes the raw pandemic expressions of two punk veterans and refines them into a ripping 13 tracks. Exhuming deep anxieties through pummelling guitars and frantic, distorted vocals, the LP is a brief but clear profile of Goren and Sokel’s combined creative voice. Grimy punk riffs propel tracks like “Life, Love and Liberty” and “Just Sounds” with the ferocious youthful intensity of Franklin or Armalite, while the frantic eccentricity of Atom and His Package shines through on “Zombies of Love”. Making the most of their fresh collaboration, Dead Best harnesses their years of shared history into a new sound, heard from the croaked vocals of “The Grind” to the instrumental grooves of “Dooms”.


The duo hadn’t initially intended the songs for release, viewing the process primarily as a coping mechanism during a period of intense upheaval. With this perspective in mind, the band set out not to clearly articulate a message with others, but to document emotional reactions for their own benefit. Abandoning pressures to “say something important”, Goren explains “at the age I’m at if I want to say something or argue something or persuade someone of something I think is important, there is media that is much more productive than making rhyming couplets”. The end result is a record that is musically emotive even when heavy distortion obscures the lyrics.
