UNDERGROUND RAILROAD TO CANDYLAND: Bird Roughs: Cassette

At the exact moment I was reviewing this record, my kid was actually playing Candyland in the next room! I swear this is fucking true! Okay, I’ve calmed down. Spry, lo-fi release from this San Pedro outfit that shows a lot of promise. ‘Livin’ in a Straw” is a cool song with some sweet fills. “Don’t Expect Me to Sleep” could be a theme song for any band out on the road for long stretches at a time. Maybe the band will allow me to upgrade to a CD at Insubordination Fest 2009. We shall see my friends, we shall see.
