DONNER PASS: Demo '08: CD-R

Sep 29, 2008

Postpunk five-songer with a heavy nod to Wire’s instrumental interplay and jagged edges, except for what is apparently their party track, which is the same as their band name and sounds like a raved-up “Louie Louie” with Matt Freeman singing. There’s something to be said for a band that sings, “Once again I see three severed heads” and makes it sound like a pretty good time. Given a brighter recording and a bit more of an aesthetic appeal—I know it’s just a demo but there’s just about no info here whatsoever besides the song titles and a really pixilated cover—I could find myself coming back to these songs more than a few times.
