HIS ELECTRO BLUE VOICE: Black Veils: 7″

Shit the bed, is this bad boy heavy. Both tunes here start off sort of quietly brooding, then work themselves into one helluva sonic lather that’s part hardcore, part post punk, and part on the same, “Let’s cram as much as we possibly can into all the sonic nooks and crannies and blow the whole thing out” head trip as Medicine or My Bloody Valentine, and finally let things slowly back off to the quiet fadeout. It’s pretty clear that English is not these Italian cats’ primary language, but while it probably would’ve been much better if they’d stuck to their native tongue, they manage to clearly make their point.
