When I call this single “DIY,” I mean that the packaging is as raw as can be while the music is a real standout. My copy of Tour 7” from Finland’s Cigarette Crossfire came in a white sleeve, hand-labeled and numbered, I think, 159 out of 208. The writing is a bit sloppy. The charming error on my copy is that the sides were labeled wrong and I didn’t figure it out until I looked it up online. All that bullshit aside, Cigarette Crossfire is melodic and thoughtful. I will be listening to more.
