Listen to: Girl Hate by DARK TIMES

I’ll admit to a huge amount of skepticism with regard to most hardcore punk of this era, while nonetheless defending the form as just as relevant and worthy of mimicry as anything else the kids are mining for 2014 kicks.

A huge exception comes via Oslo, Norway’s DARK TIMES – and it so happens I’m living in their town this summer, and I’m going to see them play this week. They’re playing w/ The Hysterics – who sound just awful to me, despite having some fans in the right places – so I think passing my internal BS bar speaks highly for Dark Times. If you’re in Oslo Thursday night, look for the old(er) guy telling everyone jeg snakker ikke norsk.
