iTunes lists Tubers as “Alternative & Punk”, whatever that means. When you actually hear Anachronous, however, the latest from Tubers, you realize that this record can’t be contained, for it’s full of life and a pressing urgency. Consider it the sonic equivalent of Evander Holyfield knocking your teeth out. Tubers convey the grit and dirt that exists deep within the soul, and does it amidst furious, charging guitars and percussion that might make lesser beings call for their mother. The band’s sound can be tough to digest at times, especially on “Expense of Flight”, which moves with Fugazi-like speed and resonance. If traditional hooks don’t get your blood flowing, then Anachronous certainly will.
