— by Rick Olivares: San Francisco, California-based Filipino-American band Hafner released their third album just the other week, Long in the Tooth, under Bay Area label, Aklasan Records.

The album cover gives away the band’s Filipino roots as the image is that of a traditional barong tagalog. The music is anything but Filipino as Hafner’s music is a mix of 1990s alternative music that is slow, noise-driven with a propulsive bass that harkens back to Fugazi, the Melvins, Flipper, the Pixies, and Nirvana.
