SPITTING IMAGE: Valley Floor: 7”

What a weird record. The music is sort of noise pop (think Shoppers) that is very informed by early Joy Division and other heavier elements of British post-punk. The closest point of reference would be early Iceage/Lower/I guess other Danish noisy punk bands, but it lacks the intensity or memorability of either of the aforementioned bands. It comes with a thirty-some page zine of artists from Nevada that is really cool and sort of overshadows the record.
