STELLA: Post Grippo Empire: CD

This mysterious three-piece from the lovely state of Ohio offer up a loud and in-your-face seven-song platter here. ‘90s-era DC guitar rock seems to have gotten some recent spins before this recording popped out. Swiz, Bluetip, and Shellac roll off my tongue after first listen. Jagged and abrasive, I’m sure this will bring converts to the table after one playback. One song is called “Pop Song in B.” Is this the first one? Only Rev. Nørb knows for sure.
