The second of the two new EP's from the mighty Purity Control. Self released by the band themselves, this one's called "Adjusting". Since I first blogged about the other 7" a few weeks ago, I've read a number of reviews and such more or less pinning these guys as a through and through powerviolence band. I'd argue against that idea pretty stringently; as I stated in my previous post, while they do utilise a certain stop/start style, there's too much of an individual approach going on here for it to be just stapled with that boring PV label. Recorded at the same time as the previous EP, like that record, the sound captured here falls in line much more with some kind of raw grind approach, though I hesitate to even compare it to something like that. On a side note, they've re-recorded a song from the second demo tape. Probably my favourite from either of the demos too, "Swallowing" sees a breath of fresh air.

I was going to post about this one soon, but you beat me to it. This record does rule though.
