U.S. Hard "Junk"

Portland artist and musician Santiago Leyba will release his debut EP as U.S. Hard next week via hometown label Blankstairs. Serving as a preview to the three-track effort is iead track, "Junk," which unrolls an array of sharpened percussion hits atop an overdriven techno base. Said to pull from Leyba's past work in post-hardcore, noise, and drone outfits, here U.S. Hard sounds focused on avoiding recognizable patterns as he restlessly manipulates and retunes a series of percussion hits, hardly landing on a repeatable phrase while rendering a handful of cowbells an metallic hits into the track's lead elements. Dropping on August 26, the Portland producer's self-titled debut EP as U.S. Hard can be streamed in full after the jump.
