ISKRA: A Statue or The Stone, Subverting b/w The Timezone: 7″

Think along the line of Pretty Girls Make Graves: speedy enough to be liked by less “hardline” punks, lots of dance-friendliness (they mention different mixes), and lyrics that question body issues and consumerism. It’s all wrapped up in exquisite, expensive thick and arty packaging. I like it well enough when it’s spinning, but there are couple too many times that that reminded me directly of ABBA and Depeche Mode for me to listen to this much more.
