NEW LABOR: Self-titled: 7”

Take Crypt Records garage rock, jazz it up with some Nomeansno-style time changes and intricacies while maintaining the sense of humor of both, and you scratch the surface of New Labor’s sound. I can’t make out much of the lead singer’s spazzed-out shouting, but when I can, like when he lamentably wails, “these sex ray spex have made a monster out of me,” it makes me glad my own morality hasn’t been tested in such a way. But don’t playa hate, just get this record as soon as possible.
