For fans of: Wolves, Innards and Four Hundred Years.

This band hails from the city where I live and hadn't even heard them until they sent me their new EP 'Scrutiny'. SKETCHBOOKS bring some serious heat/friction/noise with dabbles in softer and moodier rock thrown in for good measure. They remind me of caustic/midwestern raw emo like Four Hundred Years with the chaotic tight/loose back and forth of Foxmoulder and Innards. A very promising band, right in my own backyard!
