Arabella – “Arabella” – [Spacement]
Crusty female-fronted Scream(?) Punk
Warbly and dissonant.
Frenetic guitar (with up-strokes and angles) over note-intensive noodly bass runs.
Syncopated hand claps.One-two shuffles.
Passion meets lethargy like early west-coast Emo (Heroin or Indian Summer) with a bit of a Dischord Records sound. The innocence of youth corrupted by a lack of effectuality.
Dig the tripped out transparencies in the packaging, this might have felt pretty innovative at the time.
Their final release feels a bit dated for 2021, just like… your source (for convalescence).
No discernable FCC’s.
