TOUCH ME, SATAN: Festival of Lights: 7”

Six punk’n’roll tunes that conjure up images of a garage-y version of the New York Rel-X. Lo-fi and all the better for it! Touch Me, Satan need no slick production to demonstrate their chops! Bully! The vocalist does a great job using her voice as a counterpoint on several of the songs, which creates some satisfying harmonies with the guitars. This is like Lava soap: gritty yet cleansing. Clear vinyl!
