DEFEKTORS’ debut LP mirrors the desperation of the times with a tougher sound than witnessed on their prior output. The extra instrumental touches of the singles have been stripped away in favor of a fevered attack and desolate howl. Neither melody nor fidelity are compromised by this stark approach. Hope derived from hopelessness. Exposed, raw, and alive.  Features members of VAPID, MODERN CREATURES, TERRORBIRD, and SEX CHURCH. A co-release with Grotesque Modern. Initial pressing of 1,034 copies with Stoughton tip-on jackets. Includes download coupon.   “More Vancouver punk, and not a moment too soon (nobody else is collectively as a city doing it right). Defektors feature members of some of the other locals in this vein (Vapid, Sex Church, Modern Creatures), and finally deliver on the promise of comp tracks and their single. As with the case of Mod Creatures, start with the full-length. Songs from this record have appeared in earlier versions, but the recording has given them a thin, fried sound that suits the reckless romanticism of tracks like “Doomsday Girl” the presence they require. For the most part, Defektors follows a wound-up, face-forward pedigree reaching from the Wipers to Agent Orange to the Observers. At once stonefaced and relentless, each of these nine songs tear themselves up with urgent style. “Burning Light” from the Emergency Room comp, is stretched out to “Youth of America” length and puts this band’s second phase into orbit. The whole thing is fun and frantic, and well worth your time and money.”—Doug Mosurock
