A. RESTREPO AND THE OLDER SIBLINGS: Bare Tepiole Termination: 7″

Jesus Christ, do not accidentally play this thing at 45 RPM. It will give you a fucking heart attack. Side A begins with a man screaming repeatedly, but after that inauspicious beginning, you’re segued into nasal-voiced, occasionally off-key solo acoustic guitar-folk. Nothing particularly special, here. The random off-key moments (from both voice and guitar) started to get on my nerves before the first song was over. Despite that, the guy seems earnest and without pretension, which earns a few points with me.
