A-Heads Forgotten Hero EP

The three mid-tempo rockers on the A-HEADS second EP explore distinctly personal concerns related to love, disillusionment, and isolation—and with some success. “Love or Pain” features rich female vocals and catchy musical changes of pace, while the other tracks are more workmanlike. Nonetheless, it’s a punky, thought-provoking, and heart-felt disc, so I recommend it.

A-Heads Dying Man EP

Engaging mid-tempo Britpunk. The female vocalist has a voice rather like Exene of X, and the musical backing is more melodic and imaginative than the norm. The title track is a bitter critique of glue-sniffing. A good debut.
