Sail Hatin‘ adheres to a strict strategy:  release music and release music fast.  Masses, their 2nd EP since February, does not astray from quality or song-writing, despite their speedy release schedule.   Chris’s anthemic approach to singing reminds me of Ian Mackaye’s in Fugazi.   He (Chris)  just seems to put all and everything into it while maintaining a strong sense of melody through the grit.  I would not be surprised to find Sail Hatin’ on the Dischord Records roster.  “Lowered Expectations,” resounds as the strongest track on the release with the relate-able lyrics: “is this all you feel; a realization cut so clean; are you the one you hoped to be?”…very fitting for my ongoing quarter-life crisis (and fading attention span). If I did the math right, I expect another EP from these guys in August and I expect it to be on par, if not better than this.  Listen to Masses and their other EP below.
