At first glance, the Young Offenders can easily be mistaken for a pack of reckless sods who seem hell-bent on nothing more than beer and a close shave. But on further inspection, you can find them to be a vital cornucopia of endearing personalities and regional accents who have harvested their favorite aspects of post-punk, power pop, and early hardcore to create a sound that is unmistakably their own.
The Hex Dispensers may be obsessed with the dark shadows of the underworld, but they're far from trapped by these interests. Their lyrics speak truths on the most relatable levels, and, at times, are not restricted by reality. While their music sears out of your speakers like an egg cracked onto a Texan sidewalk in the middle of summer, the sizzling and eventual burning is transformed into hauntingly beautiful male and female harmonies.
In this volume of the Razorcake Sister Series we've teamed the driving, hot steel of the Young Offenders with the Hex Dispensers’ rust and bones witchery. Both bands have an incredibly unique style and play it with pride. And in their pride you can see that they both harness a deep appreciation for their influences, and music as a whole. Hopefully, with these records you can see our appreciation for both of them as well.
This is Razorcake Records #15 and #16.
