CAMP X-RAY: Self-titled: 7”

A self-described Drive Like Jehu-influenced post punk band, this dark, brooding mid-tempo record from Austin isn’t the miserable turd you’d expect. You won’t want to snip the belt on your turntable while this is playing, although it is overly technical and somewhat egotistical.  Hopefully post-post-punk will soon be upon us so that bands like this won’t try so hard to be sophisticated. There is some potential here, but these guys need to lighten the fuck up.
