The debut full-length from this L.A.-based duo is a compilation of tracks from previous EPs. But considering the extremely limited production runs of those discs, it's hardly redundant.
The quickest way to describe their sound is to call them a noise band, although that does little to explain their appeal. What makes them unique is the disparity of the two musical extremes they waver between -- one moment it's wall-of-fuzz shoegazer dreamscapes, the next it's full-on scrappy punk rock.
Maybe if Black Flag tried covering My Bloody Valentine or if the Jesus And Mary Chain worshipped the Ramones instead of the Velvet Underground, it might sound like this.
It's lo-fi, abrasive, often barely musical, but oddly gorgeous and exhilarating.
