Jowls is a three piece band from Grand Rapids, Michigan featuring former members of Victor! Fix The Sun. The band initially began as a two piece and recently added the former bassist of Cloud Mouth to their roster. I liked what the band did with their split 7" with The Reptilian as well as their Cunt Punch EP and was looking forward to their new 10". Cursed totally exceeded my expectations and features five new songs of beefed up post-hardcore influenced screamo. The addition of their new bassist totally takes the band's sound to a completely different level. Seriously, Cursed is the band's best material to date. The songs are heavier, angular and discordant as hell. This is the way post-hardcore influenced screamo should be played! Great stuff! -chris
