If you've gone to shows at houses or dives during the past few years, you may have had the seemingly haphazard chance to catch a set by Hauksness. Although they've been playing intermittently, releasing music nonchalantly, and varying their lineup, the core of the project continues to burn brightly, and seems to be on the cusp of becoming a more steady presence. Some stellar recordings are available on their Bandcamp, including the Because Good Is Dumb EP released earlier this year, which features truly killer, deceivingly polished and instantly rapturing tracks like "Limey BP Fish Sticks," marked by raspy lyrical delivery that intermingles with twisting guitars and frenetic drumming. The But Thou Must EP from 2010 contains such under-two-minute punk perfection as the anthemic "Primitive Arithmetic." A third EP is upcoming—if it's more of the same, I can't wait to hear it.
