Tiny Mix Tapes

Mclusky’s first two records were antidotes to everything twee about indie rock in the early ’00s. Packed with biliousness and hilariously over-the-top spite, they were manna to a particular milieu: the male cynic, the angry and backwardly rockist, and the people too irony-damaged to get with the program. I hear Christgau tut-tutting as I write this paragraph. I imagine him looking up at the positive rating and shaking his head. Goddamn that guy.

I know someone, who knows the brother of the then bassist/backing vocalist of Future of the Left. Therefore, I am the utmost authority in telling you if this album is good or not.

It is.
All in all a great album with a lot of thick, powering bass lines throughout. The whole album makes for a nice listen.
