LUMBER LUNG: Demo 2010: CD

Jul 06, 2010

A five-song demo from a Santa Barbara band that reminds me of the most artiest and no wave portions of the Dischord Records catalog. Female lead vocals with a shouted secondary male counterpoint makes for some interesting interactions. However, I could see the occasionally tuneless lead vocals getting to be a bit grating upon repeated listenings. The songs themselves are above average and equal parts epic, melancholy, and chaotic.
