REMUS AND THE ROMULAN NATION: 7"

Jul 21, 2009

I'm not scared of lo-fi, but this sounds like it's played under a mattress, so it's hard to pull out the nuances. The vocalist sounds like a super-political Chi Pig of SNFU – almost cartoony, but earnest. It also brings to mind a muddier Crimpshrine or a duct-tape-ier Operation Cliff Clavin: the songs are mid-tempo, partially melodic, partially anthemic, and socially aware (the song explanations are longer than the songs themselves). It's okay. I just wish it sounded more listenable.
