NINE FINGERED THUG: Women Are Magic: Cassette

Nine Fingered Thug are really sludgy and dark, and this release reminds me, at times, of early Swans, Killdozer (especially in the vocals), and sometimes even CopShootCop. Anyone who is into that type of dirgey, depressing, “music to slit your wrists to” kind of stuff will be totally into it. This cassette release comes with a download code, so you needn’t worry about hooking up your tape deck or digging that old cassette Walkman out of the closet when the time comes to end it all.
