CHARLES ALBRIGHT: The First Four Years: Cassette

This one man band from Sacramento, CA does a rip on the Black Flag album of the same name, even wearing a Black Flag shirt on the cartoon cover. You have eighteen mostly short songs covering the time from 2009–2012 that were originally released as singles, plus three unreleased songs. He plays really fuzzed-out garage punk with some hooks thrown in and a lot of energy. The production is a bit rough, but it makes the recording work, kind of like finding an old cassette that got beat up, but still has tunes that you really like on it. Only 250 hand-numbered copies made, 100 yellow, and 150 clear.
