Louder- S/T LP. After a couple of singles on the Japanese label Episode Sounds, Sorry State is proud to release the debut LP from Japan’s Louder. I was introduced to Louder by Tsubasa, the guitarist of Rough Kids and it’s clear why he likes them so much, as Louder bear more than a passing resemblance to Rough Kids’ song-centered, ’77-influenced punk. However, Louder bring a distinctly Japanese take to the table, augmenting the Buzzcocks / Adverts-style melodic punk with some of the wild garage sounds of bands like the Registrators and Teengenerate. 10 tracks and all of them hits.
