Comfort at Any Cost

Hailing from Wisconsin, Arms Aloft are quite a surprise with their 7” debut Comfort at Any Cost. This four-song EP follows up a demo recording released last year. The four-piece outfit have concocted an upbeat mixture of punk and rock and roll. Arms Aloft has a definite Hot Water Music sound, but with a bit more of a rock feel at points as well. Stylistically they incorporate a fair amount of melody like Samiam and Jawbreaker did back in the day. I’m a pretty big fan of what I’m hearing on this record. I really love it when I find a new band. Thank you for sending this to me. Pick up a copy of this (they’re working on a second pressing already).
