Mirrors – “Something That Would Never Do” [Violet Times]

sluggo   8/12/2009   A Library

This compilation vinyl only release from Cleveland’s Mirrors is limited to 800 copies. Raw 1970’s power – Stooge-like punk rock, Velvety (Underground) in texture (especially in the use of repetition), Kinks-like in 2:00 pop framework. These songs feel like they are a lot longer than they are. They’re so densely filled with chewy nougat and tempo changes. It can be easy to think a song is ending when it’s actually just breaking-down and transitioning to a new part. There are some very nice guitar sounds mixed with pop song structures and grungy lo-fi 70’s jams. So, really, just play the crap out of this thing.
