Mujahedeen (2019)

Portland, OR

Drawing inspiration from indie rock of the ‘90s, Mujahedeen capture the underlying exasperation present in the guitar licks and lyrics from that golden era—they are instantly familiar without sounding like cheap imitations. The band carries the torch and lights up areas left unexplored while paying homage to the greats, evoking Doug Martsch’s temperamental vocals and Fugazi’s crowd-igniting riffs.
