PYGMY SHREWS: The Egyptian: CD

Ahh, dual male and female vocals… For this reviewer, that’s almost as good as a cold beer on a hot day. Almost. Well, here it is: the long-awaited first full length from Brooklyn’s Shrews. They continue their hardcore noise tirade riding on a melodic surf of dissonance and fuzz. Some I took a shine to are, “Your Party Sucks,” which will be the new house party track and “Dead Wrong,” which is a spoken word chain of rhetorical questions. Big Time is sold out on their myspace, so be sure to snap this up right quick. Recommended.
