MP3: Hjertestop - Illegalt signal

I fully did not expect Hjertestop to make it to the Pacific NW on their current US jaunt, but when 5pm rolled out yesterday evening I got a last-minute show announcement on my local email list so of course I went. How could I not? It was within easy walking distance and the weather was downright summery yesterday. They're still one of my least favorite bands doing that "diagonal punk" thing right now (it's a design thing more than just a sound; Hjertestop has the latter more than the former), but that's not saying much because they're still 100% solid and they proved it last night by delivering an equally solid set. As expected, it was no-frills hardcore punk performed with machine-like efficiency in that way that only the Scandinavians seem to master. My favorite: "Illegalt signal". Every break, every triplet: total precision. Even though it had me out until 1am on a Monday, I regret nothing.
