REVOLT PLAN 8: Tales from the Shed: CD-R

This is a rough recording with elements reminiscent of SST-era Sonic Youth and early Nirvana, but not in a clichéd way. This three piece definitely comes from a punk background, as can be seen by the brevity and simplicity of a lot of their songs. The dirty-sounding guitars were reminiscent of earlier Sonic Youth and one of the two vocalists bears a resemblance to Kurt Cobain. My suggestions for the band are to cut some songs, tighten up the material, and work on the recording quality. That’s not to say I want it to sound clean, but just to mix the levels well. If they did that, I’d be interested in hearing more.
