Ultra Sorta

(Concession)

Ultra Sorta is a pretty impressive batch of tunes from this heavier-than-a-really-heavy-thing outfit straight out of Toronto. The group isn’t afraid of throwing in powerful hooks (such as in “Simple Living”), never shies away from an almighty stoner riff (the ultra, mega heavy hold of “Rennie”) and will not be convinced that compromise is anywhere in the cards. With five tracks that take up a scant 15 minutes of your precious time, this hits hard, fast and without apology, the way that Hüsker Dü‘s Land Speed Record did. Of course, this outfit has more in common with Damaged-era Black Flag and Fugazi than Bob Mould and the boys, but the intensity is undeniable. Smart and powerful, this collection of songs is like sprinkling angel dust on your oatmeal.
