$3 which is a bargain, when you consider what it takes to press a single...or in digital terms that's .60 a song...cheaper than itunes. TNV is back! This went on sale yesterday from Matador and includes a pretty sweet poster from when they played at the Whitney. I remember missing that.
This actually is perfect as a vinyl 7". I have to admit a lot of times playing the full length it kind of completely takes over, and after a long day and the bullshit of the city, a wave of static and yelling can be a little overwhelming. Catchy, but I need to think sometimes. So small doses can be just the double shot I need to put me to sleep.
Adding all these layers of overmodulation and distortion over what is essentially some kind of beat happening twee. It's so gosh darn harmonic, but all the fuzz instatly makes it kind of bad ass. Just like the Yips that I will never get over. The best two piece ever. It's still the noise your parents hate and no one understands, but it's still gentle and cutsie....I said it.
In a good way.
