Heatmap is a new post-punk trio based in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, a reunion of old collaborators from bygone New York band Rahim.
Eric Freda, Michael Friedrich, and Phil Sutton’s debut EP, Pulses, arrives digitally this Friday, November 17, with a limited edition run of cassettes via Dimension Arts. Drawing from the dissonant touchstones of the ’90s underground — think Lungfish, Shellac, Unwound — the band crafts a stark vision that is austere, but also melodic.
Minimalism reigns on EP-opener “Erase”, while lead single “Tower” romps with hard-drive energy amid sharp guitar lines and vocals. Intricate rhythms led by pummeled drums mark “Grow” as rumbling bass presses through “Confess.” The cold post-punk/noise rock heat continues to emanate on closing number “Reactor.”
