Hot Water Music 'Caution' LP
True to it's title, Caution immediately demands the listener's undivided attention. With a unique blend of heartfelt punk, guttural rock, and explorative neo-hardcore, Hot Water Music shirks categorization on Caution. Immediate and infectious on Trusty Chords, a feral rocker that works off a pop blueprint, the band emphasizes variety as it glides into the rhythm-steeped One Step To Slip and the cathartic I Was On A Mountain. Further demonstrating Hot Water Music's depth, Caution sees the band careen from the circle-pit stylings of Wayfarer to the subtle yet frenetic underpinning of Alright For Now with artful management. The Gainesville, Florida foursome differs from virtually every other band making punk-inspired sounds in 2002. On Caution - the group's second disc for Epitaph - Hot Water Music drives home the point that music should be more about substance and skill and less about red hair dye.
