HAZEL’S WART: Together We Didn’t: LP

From the sounds of it, these kids are swallowing massive doses of late ‘80s/early ‘90s alt rock, noise pop, and all points between. Offsetting noisy, sludgy guitars are laid back vocals topping the kinda rock fodder you’d find on your average left-of-the-dial station during college rock’s glory days. They do it well, to their credit, and they have enough sense to limit their cherry-picking to the time before big record company money came along and pissed all over the party. –Jimmy Alvarado
