If there is one thing I have realized after living nearly half a decade in Denver, it is that bands here love the early ‘90s Touch And Go and Dischord sound. Here we have the band Swells and they are right in there with that sound, with maybe a little Ebullition vibe on top. Gaff are from Austin and are mining the same territory, except maybe they would have been a little more at home on Troubleman. Some serious ‘90s emo/noise rock worship from both bands here on this record. Not my cuppa, but both bands do what they do quite well.
