Ah, Siltbreeze. You can always rely on them to deal out something authentically filthy-sounding. This is probably about as summery as records from this label come but there's still a dense shroud of guitar fuzz over everything. In fact this is a totally great garage rock record, kind of an update on the early Sonic Youth sophisticated neanderthal vibe. In fact basically the similarities are so glaring that I'd have to say that if you like early Sonic Youth and want more records that sound like that, this is pretty essential, and they come across a whole lot more authentic and enjoyable than the vast majority of the SY pretenders I've heard in my time. There's touches of the Velvets when they go quieter too...but then the same can be said of the 'Yoof, right? The songs here are consistently well written and the whole record is totally listenable. Washington DC's Pregnant put out a brilliant self-titled album a year or two ago that sounded like a load of unheard outtakes from the first Foo Fighters album sessions. This album kinda does the same for Bad Moon Rising, so similar is the tone palette. But it's still ace.
