Is it punk? Hardcore? Garage? Make up your own mind about Cloak/Dagger’s
latest full-length, Lost Art.
Colin Barth’s winding guitars juggle melody, punch and vitriol on par
with the Avengers, John Reis, Mission of Burma and Greg Ginn. Play it
loud on tracks such as “Deathbed Rebels” that push the punk envelope a
bit further with frenzied, circle-pit fodder reminiscent of the Circle
Jerks and Big Boys.
Underneath, snaking rolls of bass drive the proceedings with the
flawless percussive thrust of the Ramones, Hot Snakes and bygone Boston
hardcore heroes F.U.s, Jerry’s Kids. Over this Jason Mazzola
distinguishes the band with a full, arching tenor that’s more bellow
than scream. Mazzola’s delivery and lyrics shine especially on numbers
like “Lower Eastada” and “Dead Idols,” where the band’s punk ‘n roll
swagger takes over (think more Johnny Thunders, less Ray Cappo). After
listening to Lost Art, you won’t be worried about categorizing the band,
only when they go back on tour.
