GIRL GUTS: Victoria: CD-R

The internet gods say this band hails from Washington; given said gods’ accuracy, I can’t vouch for the veracity of that information. What I can say is they dole out some tasty, gruff indie rock with a punk core. The sound dynamics are a bit rough overall, ostensibly to give it some punk edge, but the diversity in evidence from one song to the next and overall structures make it clear they know their way around the whole songwriting thing. Normally not my thing, they definitely do what they do well enough that I can’t help but say the finished product is impressive.
