Album Review

The breakup of Galaxie 500 left Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang disillusioned and ready to give up music. After being drawn back by Kramer, the duo recorded More Sad Hits for Shimmy Disc under the name Damon & Naomi. They decided to stick with music after this, and signed to Sup Pop where they stayed for seven years and released four albums.

This weighted distribution makes for a stronger collection, one that will please longtime fans who want an overview of one of the better under-the-radar bands of their era.
