On their debut album From Safer Place, noisy English trio Fawn Spots melds SST-era early hardcore with post-punk melodicism across 10 tracks, most of which come and go in less than three minutes. The careening, flexible tempos and deep vocals bring to mind a modern, more aggressive spin on the breakneck sound of Hüsker Dü, forceful but not malicious.

From Safer Place is out next week on Critical Heights, and you can take an early listen to the record below.
