RSD Highlight #7 — Axe & The Oak

Available on Record Store Day:

Axe & The Oak 7″

This is the first vinyl release by Radio-Active Records, an independent record store in South Florida, as well as Miami band Axe & the Oak. This double a-side 7″ is culled from their CD-only EP which was released earlier last year. Both tracks show excellent craftsmanship in both the playing and production, creating a truly engaging and cinematic experience. Their sound can best be described as post-punk twang, displaying both the gothic undertones of bands like the Damned or the Birthday Party with the twang of instrumental surf rock. Pounding drums, dark bass lines, reverb-soaked guitars, and a brooding vocal style equal parts Lux Interior and Dave Vanian. Not just a sum of their influences, Axe and the Oak have created a solid and powerful record worth repeated listens. Black virgin vinyl with a stark and minimal sleeve.
