ASTRAL GUNK: Self-titled: Cassette

There’s a ton of guitar wankery on this tape, and I mean a whole metric ton, which is something I’m normally very into, but the excessive use of guitar effects kills my appreciation for it. Astral Gunk sound like they were going for a weird fusion of psychedelia, garage punk, and fuzz rock on this tape. While I appreciate the attempt, I think if this had a lot more rock, and a lot less effects, I’d have been way more into it.
