EXORCISMS: “Scripted Lines” b/w “This Might Hurt a Bit”: 7”

I feel like the members of this band own Drive Like Jehu records and really good soul 45s, which means I would hang out with them for sure. There’s also something garage-y about them, too. Is this post-garage? I don’t know how to describe the guitar work at the end of “Scripted Lines” so I will say it’s “like cool sparkly lasers,” a term you will learn if you study serious music at prestigious places. “Solid/driving/cool guitar sounds” is one of the great micro-genres, and Exorcisms do that micro-genre justice.
