"Flasher's airy melodic vocal hooks, layererd over grungy instrumentation, earn comparisons to Goo-era Sonic Youth. The more relentless tracks recall the overdriven shoegaze of A Place to Bury Strangers." —Pitchfork
Ruiners (Houston, TX)
"There aren’t too many times when you can watch a room full of people be just as excited as the band that’s performing, but that’s what happens when Houston’s Ruiners performs. Mixing elements of punk and post punk, the four piece has been described as a mix of The Wipers and Television. Keeping on a tireless pace of recording and booking D.I.Y. charity shows since releasing the 2016 EP Wasted Years, while being respected as one of the most pure and integrity based punk bands coming out of the Houston punk scene." — David Garrick, Free Press Houston
