Album Review

Heater – “God and Hair” – [Permanent Records]

Dianthus   8/8/2011   12-inch, A Library

Listen away as the 90’s catch an 80’s new wave on this album from the newly formed band Heater. This trio from Columbia, Missouri consists of members from Jeruselum, Starbaskets and the California Raisins. Kick back and bask in the sunlight of low-fi indie punk and bathe in the grotty depths of psychadelia. Vocals chant out over carefully, but not so carefully picked guitars, while the bass tiptoes around rocking tunes like “Black and Gold” and “Fire Peacock”. Check out the track “Fire Flight” for a pretty much instrumental seascape and “Rad Boy” for a totally rad intro to the song by starting off goth and ending up punk. Only 500 copies of this “God and Hair” LP produced and never to repressed again, so get your sandy little hands on this tasty morsel.
