Your Daily Lick: The Violent High

Defying Strife (self-released)

Oakland all the way, the Violent High spent six months self-recording its debut at Soundwave Studios and shouts out in the liner notes to venerable institutions like the Stork Club and the Kona Club. The music is a bit less expected: the sort of yearning, melodic hard-rock that’s easy to spoil yet here does surprisingly well.
