CHALLENGER DEEP, THE: Self-titled: CD-R

This San Diego three piece appreciates the angularity of Drive Like Jehu. These five songs are produced by Mario Quintero at Black Box Studios, just down the street from my house. Sounds nice and thick with the expected bombastic flavor added. Early ‘90s post punk is still alive in 2007. I recommend checking these guys out. Cool lo-fi artwork looks sharpie drawn and I’m sure they hand-etched that shit.
