At first listen, Baltimore’s Multicult comes off as noisy garage punk trash that’s been done a million times. However, right before I was about to skip “S Curve,” the sixth track off their latest release Position Release, I realized that this band isn’t just hitting record and throwing their instruments against the wall – there’s actually an interesting dynamic happening underneath the hum of garage tones.
In a way that sounds like three musicians are actually moving against each other, Multicult matches choppy drum breaks and driving bass lines with polyrhythmic guitar progressions for a sound that feels abrasive but actually makes a lot of sense.
