At times I am reminded of Sonic Youth put in a blender with Sunny Day Real Estate. I may be late to the party, as this group clearly has a dedicated following, but better late than never. Consider me a new convert. In the depth of the noise, the distortion, the yelped vocals, the found sounds, there is a beating heart yearning ... read more
