Stream It From The Mountain: Let It Go - "Modern Atlas" EP

Richmond, VA skate-punk label and skateboard company Say-10 Records recently released Modern Atlas, the debut EP from the Baltimore-based punk band Let It Go.  The 5-track EP is the perfect introduction to their gritty yet melodic sound that harnesses the aggressive hardcore-tinged emo-punk of the late 90’s and bands like, Texas Is The Reason and Hot Water Music with their own modern touch.

The limited edition 7” vinyl was released on the following colorways: 100 Blue / Yellow Mix, 100 Gold, 100 Green and 100 Coke Bottle Clear.  It is also available on CD or digitally. 
Modern Atlas opens with the super-charged “Diehard 2” and its anthemic gang-vocal chorus.  The dynamic “$5.50” follows with a super-melodic and nostalgic take on old school hardcore.  The standout track, “Sluggish” closes out the A-side and is anything but "sluggish" with an unrelenting rhythm, a rumbling fuzzed-out bass line and a furious vocal.  The B-side of their very promising debut features the gruff vocals but positive-minded lyrics of “Rise/Set” and closer, “Age”, a rebellious rumination on growing old.
