Red Hare - Nites of Midnite - 2013 Dischord Records
The best thing I can say about Red Hare is that they have managed to put together a brand new band that stands up all on it's own and doesn't need to rely on the band members past glories to help carry them along. In other words, the new album "Nites of Midnite" is not a trip down memory lane or some nostalgia trip for 40+ year old's looking to relive their youth. "Nites of Midnite" is an urgent, energetic slice of catchy post hardcore that on one hand contains everything you would hope this collection of musicians would deliver, and on the other hand manages to deliver music that is fresh and most importantly grounded in the present day and not in the past...Buy Buy Buy...Dave G.
