Featured on “The Necessary Effect” collection (Screamers covers), Intelligence a foursome out of Seattle offer their second release (follow up to 2005’s “Boredom and Terror”) “Icky Baby”. The latest line-up being Lars Finberg (A frames) on vocals , drummer Matthew Ford, bass player Calvin Lee Reeder (the Popular Shapes) , and Nicholas Brawley (the Popular Shapes) on guitar. Finberg recorded at least half of the tracks at home, alone, and all of them sound water-logged, broken, or busted-up with plenty of distortion. Noisey, garage-punk, art junk.
