Ah, the mid-2000s, when guys in jeans made for women wore shirts two sizes too small and played pseudo-grind music with breakdowns and silly song titles. What an annoying time to be involved in underground hardcore. However, a few Daughters-ish sounding gems did cut their way through the clutter, and The Sawtooth Grin was a shimmering example. With only 2 short EPs and unsubstantiated rumors of a comeback five years ago, their wick really did burn quite quickly. I did get to see them live once and I can’t believe Rich Lombardi’s voice actually sounds just like this in person. This is my favorite song by them.
