Valume Nob, "The Most High"
New Orleans’ Valume Nob approach their music like true cavemen. The material on their EP The Most High is simplistic, lacking finesse, raw and heavy. Much of it has an old school punk vibe with sarcastic, violent lyrics. Through the 15 minutes of this disc you’ll get a pretty decent beat down but there won’t be a lot to take with you. The band’s choice of gritty production and minimal packaging adds to the stripped-down theme they’re pushing on The Most High, but at a certain point, this tactic works against them. In the end, Valume Nob just don’t have quite enough to offer us to hold our interest even for the duration of this short EP.
