TRASH TALK- AWAKE EP
Hardcore album of the year, unless you count Iceage. 5 songs over in 8 minutes. Thrashing! Any fans of Off! will love this.
TORO Y MOI- FREAKING OUT EP
Great companion piece to “Underneath the Pine” full length. Takes the neo disco of “New Beat” to happy extremes.
THE FRESH & ONLYS- SECRET WALLS EP
SF scenesters that sound like the spaciest of the 60’s Nuggets bands and early Syd Barrett era Floyd. Can’t wait to check out more of their stuff.
DUM DUM GIRLS- HE GETS ME HIGH EP
Stop gap ep that pointed the way out of the garage for the Dum Dum Girls. First two tracks are two of the band’s very best. And pretty cool Smiths cover too.
