World’s Lousy With Ideas Vol. 8, The [coll] – [Almost Ready Records]

Guilty as charged. Pretty much all of these bands except Blank Dogs have had solid success on KFJC already. So I guess this is a popular collection of the unpopular. Vivian Girls unmask themselves as Lush fans. Newcomers (to me) Blank Dogs sound like they are sneaking into the Cassettencombinat. Times New Viking excites cheerleaders for backing vox. Intelligence gets messy on the Mersey. Guinea Worms have filthy fun with “Soiled Sender.” Sic Alps nails a song before it actually becomes a song. Thee Oh Sees continue to mine the solid gold secret garage beneath the garage. That mic they record with should be counted as part of the band! Tyvek to me are the answer for a nation pitying Detroit, they do some heavy riff drilling, mad Michigan pride. Pink Reason concludes things with a feedback shanty accompanied by drum tumult. The bass is up on these tracks, the vox are squelched and the reverb is omnipresent. Dingy and ringy sonic clingies. Kudos to Almost Ready for this time capsule, and for the previous seven 7″‘s in the World’s Lousy series.
