Album Review

Two slices of lean, angular post-punk guitar interplay from this Athens, GA, three-piece. One hears glimpses of old-schoolers Television and Mission of Burma in the tightly wound chordings of Eric Friar and Sherryl A. Branch, as well as Shellac's more measured performances and just a dollop of Pavement's melodic sense.
