Review
by Raymond Cummings of the Village Voice. 

The Midwest Harshfest 1 Compilation is the rare comp that actually improves the further into it one advances, with the disfiguring dissonance of Rochester, New York's Waves Crashing Piano Chords and the bug-eyed, Boredoms-inspired blurt of Ontario's Disleksick setting the tone for what's to come. Then — then — the back end serves up a startling series of sucker-punches that'll send you scouring the bands' respective Bandcamp pages for more. Check it: cratering static from Lima, Ohio's Citizen 213; choppy, Emergency Broadcast System annihilation courtesy of Chicago's Pregnant Spore; the harrowing, soul-entombing churn of Detroit's Obiekt 172; how Sumpter, Michigan's RedSK jump-cuts from cymbal-smothering post-hardcore to intimately bizarre, synth-powered monologues in what seems like no time at all. A potent reminder that the world of noise comps is a vast one, and we'd all do well to spend much more time there.
