MAN HANDS: Misadventures: CD-R

 Amped up, jittery garage rock a la Tokyo Electron or Lost Sounds. Lots of good ideas with mediocre execution. I can’t tell you how much more I would have enjoyed the record if it was just sung a little better. It felt like catching a band at the end of stressful tour and they just don’t feel like playing right now. When the band was working, it was almost always the music that was doing the heavy lifting. Grade: B.
