fyeahmetal This is one of the finest immersions into low end and lower midrange I've experienced. I keep thinking of reference points like Torche and Smashing Pumpkins, except Hum probably influenced those bands and are just reclaiming their throne here. I also hear classic shoegaze like MBV and Swervedriver, just with a ton more muscle. It's rare these days that a band stands out for its guitar tones, but this record truly is a vulgar display of power. Favorite track: Desert Rambler.

Richard Delgado And HOW . . . as McFarlane usedta say. Best thing I did this Bandcamp Friday was try to pay back some really great Chaos.

When your buddies are your family. And you each handle an instrument or two with elan.

To wit, I'm sad as all twilight that I couldn't've partaken in these beautiful stubs of at least being given an opportunity to *actually support* the ones who grant you joie de vivre, before the drummer passed on.

Well, here's to all the "spins" I can get these folks . . . 🦋💖
