Sometimes we all need to make some pretty pissed off music, of course - everybody knows that. The real question here is, does the name Fawn Spots refer to a place where fawns hang out, or is about different times people spotted fawns? Or maybe it’s about the spots on a fawn’s lower back. Honestly this band is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, but their new 7" sure sounds tasty!

7/10 Robin Staff review, 20 January 2015

Fawn Spots think that punk music is built on a rock steady foundation of unhappy guitars and vocals that require a lot of spitting and saliva. They can be right, for all I care: what is punk good for if it doesn’t belong to everyone? Their gruff punk single “New Sense” sounds like a more pissed off (and strangely more jubilant) rendition of Dinosaur Jr.’s “Little Furry Things”, fighting its way through bitty distortion and torrential drumming so it can get to a cute intercepting riff. It might sound sloppy, but this is well done stuff; the inwardly-collapsing production makes the vocals sound hurried and communal, while the outro spews out a couple extra chords and fills to signify that there are more messy emotions where that came from.

B-side “Twenty Four Hours” is one of those reflective punk elegies you’ve heard on ‘End Hits’, or maybe even chanced upon with the new Ought record. It’s also a Joy Division cover, though it’s played out to a much more gruesome conclusion, taking on ominous, snaking riffs before the band immediately hurl themselves into the punk rock abyss. On this one, they sound a little Iceage: drunk on something expensive, fucked off and falling over on the street as a lifestyle choice, they drive to the end with none of the subtlety of post-punk, but with thrashing road rage. It sounds great, of course.
