***Edges is the long anticipated debut album from Philly’s HOT GUTS (founded in 2007 by frontman WES RIUSSELL and drummer GREG FRANTZ as a sonic reflection of the rotting urban hell hole that surrounded them). Edges is a perfect blend of sullen and morose post-punk, catchy synthwave, and industrial nihilism that is somehow overshadowed by a sense of a youthful optimism that spits in the face of overwhelming tragedy. Comparisons could certainly be made to bands like Savage Republic (Tragic Figures era) or Cop Shoot Cop, but they would have to be tapered with the side of things that could fit seamlessly alongside classic early Factory Records bands. Ultimately, these comparisons are useless since Edges is a solid album that really just needs to be listened to start to finish. Russell and Frantz were joined on this recording by Philly musicians MICHAEL REASER (FNU RONNIES) and ADAM COOPER (TICKLY FEATHER). Edges also features contributions from legendary Philly-based experimental musician CHARLES COHEN (on the Buchla Box), and the lovely MISS SHARI VARI (aka VOID VISION). Edges is available as a deluxe gatefold edition and comes with a free digital download.
