Apache Dropout – “Radiation” – [Mexican Summer]

surferrosa   1/18/2012   7-inch, A Library

Apache Dropout from Indiana deliver three tracks of noisy, garage-psych fun. The A side contains some hard drivings, fuzzed out distorto-shoegaze punk. Not too catchy, but just catchy enough. The B side kicks off with the track school girl, short and sweet, sticky with dirt, it delivers bob your head dance aroud infectiouseness. Born to die is a lazy, tremolo riddled, reberby almost yet not quite surfy tune. Spaciouse and sweet. MAKE NOTE!: tracks one and two on side B do not track. There is a locked groove in between them so don’t try to play the whole side at once. You should also note that B2 has reversed grooves, so drop the needle where it looks like the track should end and the needle will spin all the way back to the locked grove in the middle of the vynal. Have fun. -Surfer Rosa
