AR-KAICS, THE: “Cut Me Down” b/w “Sick and Tired”: 7”

The Ar-Kaics has been tearing it up with the singles lately. This recent one is a classy offering of one jangly speed and one slower song. It ups the ante because they pull it off well. Too many bands play because it seems easy to mimic Lux Interior, but it isn’t. Great band with essential singles.
