DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS: Los Dias de Junio: CD

The press one-sheet describes this as “a carefully constructed album with equal parts of minimalist swell and swirling tension of sound, providing each instrument in the texture plenty of space.” It goes on to say the band is “determined to make you calm and disturbed at the same time.” Well, I’ve got to say their determination has won out, ’cause I’m calmly certain that I am no fan of the emo-drenched art-rock crap they’re peddlin’ and I’m disturbed that it may somehow taint my CD player in such a way that my Adolescents CDs will sound like Piebald from this point forward or something. Wait…. Nope, Tony and the boys still sound as glorious as ever.
