RUNNING FOR COVER: Dark Well: LP

Defunct Buffalo, NY, powerviolence band from recent years who sound like they existed in the WestBay circa 1995: MITB mixed with Spazz and ran through a blender at lightning speed. They throw in some quirky guitar squonking here and there to keep it interesting, and the instrumental at the end is totally out of left field, but it’s good to hear a band take risks in a codified genre. Good stuff all around. Too bad they called it a day.
