GIVE keep hardcore punk exciting. Earlier this month, they put out the killer video for "Beyond the Gun," and today they've dropped their newest EP, Electric Flower Cult. It's probably the D.C. band's most realized effort to date, their guitar work conjuring the likes of Nation of Ulysses and other great locals while maintaining a unique sound that no other band has. "Out of Your World" shows the band totally losing control, riffs spinning off in strange directions, no fucks given. Elsewhere, "Do as You Feel" put the emphasis on thundering drums, providing a harder edge. It's continuously exciting stuff, breathing more life into the genre.
