comfort creature




comfort creature are a post-punk band from Asheville, North Carolina.  Their music is the very definition of lo-fi, and they embody a strong DIY ethic.  comfort creature has a very concise aesthetic, which is one of the reasons I like this band so much.  For fans of Pity Sex and teen suicide.
