BLACK BUG: Self-titled: 7”

Nov 15, 2011

When I was in high school, there was a noticeable lack of punks around, so I usually ended up spending my Friday and Saturday nights at goth clubs, where the music pumping through the speakers was good enough, but not necessarily something I was in a rush to find out more about. The A side of this 7” sounds exactly like something I would have heard at one of those clubs: synth and drum machine-heavy, dark, almost psychedelic post rock with female vocals straight out of the Experimental Jetset-era Sonic Youth playbook. Just like those songs I heard back in high school, this is good, just not something I’d seek out on my own. The Side B is a thirty second instrumental that just as easily could have been left off.
