Not sure if you really have a chance of picking this up but this is worth noting anyway, the tracks I've been able to hear so far feature lots of echo guitar, recorded with that attention to crystal clear production values everyone likes to use these days...ummmmm right. Anyway the lead female vocals caught me off guard I have to say, for a little bit it I was convinced it was some kind of weird ween tape manipulated effect, but no it's just some kind of not super blown out distorted mess, a little held back, or that's just her voice. It's original.
Straight up garage rock, sounding a few decades ago, backed up nice with some organ, Barky, who plays bass as well, certainly has got an energy, this is near Love Is All proportions, but without the cute (for better or worse).
'Insane OK' is the case in point, it's a little quiet kind of meandering number which she completely pulls together with this great vocal quality, kind of nico-esque. Making it her own without a lot of overused references. The other tracks I sampled on the myspace go from blowing everything out with super distortion rock out mess to acoustic near twee, but edgier....and sad.
I hope there are still a few copies left...email below first and paypal immediately.
