MICROBES: Self-titled: 7”

This totally bizarre, semi-creepy five-song EP from Denmark comes with a hilarious comic book detailing the formation of this odd band. Replete with puerile AIDS and rape jokes as social commentary, these guys are using their ESL skills to non-masterful effect. Kind of like a slower version of Spider Babies, this record comes off as a bit contrived, but the mid-tempo melodic tracks are serviceable enough. The beautiful sleeve / comic save the day for this interestingly askance release.
