NEW BERLIN: Self-titled: CS

The demo really is not changing much as time goes on—it still seems to be a way to cheaply release something that is not fully formed or focused in any way. This band from Texas is utilizing the format to release a lo-fi recording with a little indie, a little noise rock, and covers of Leonard Cohen and Ramones.
