Boomkat Product Review:
Solid unreleased posthumous material from dance-punk mainstay Sam Mehran, who played in Matrix Metals, Curse, Flashback Repository, Explorers, Test Icicles, MELT, The Sweethearts and more.
Mehran passed away in July 2018, and he left behind not only a colorful 15-year recording legacy but a large catalogue of unreleased music. His father and friends have put together "Cold Brew" to celebrate his solo music, and this is the first time it's been released under his own name. The songs have been selected from over a hundred tracks, and are presented without any additional production or remixes. Mehran wanted to make an instrumental rock album, and that's what we're presented with - admittedly edged with the humid spikiness of beat scene hip-hop.
