American punk outfit Charm School unleashed their EP Finite Jest, and within its rebellious soundscape, Year of the Scorpion emerges as a gritty post-punk delight. Infused with an unmistakable 80s flavor, it channels the anarchic spirit of The Fall, melded with the abrasive noise of The Jesus Lizard, reminiscent of the bold sonic territories explored by SST Records and Amphetamine Reptile. This punk anthem is raw to its core, boasting a cacophonous intensity capable of prompting your neighbor’s divorce, and rebelliously defying the conformity of the average worker bee languishing before his boss.

Charm School’s sonic rebellion is an unapologetic ode to punk ethos and nonconformity.
