Bandcamp of the Day: Mugger

Mugger are a hardcore band based out of Austin, Texas. The band have recently released a 2022 demo featuring eight hypnotic tracks.

The demo explodes into a furious melody, with the intro bringing in a static sound that’s fast-paced and features growls alongside the screeching of a microphone. It flows directly into “101,” a song that’s quick with emphasis on guitars and spitting vocals, honing in on a punk vibe.

As the demo continues, “Dear SCOTUS” enters putting pressure on their hard side. Vocals are rough, and drums crash with dramatics as the song draws to a close.

The demo ends with “Dead Friends” meshing their world of punk and hardcore music, turning listeners into fans, and leaving their new following wanting more.
