VALENTEENS, THE: Fuzzed out Tone for the Painfully Alone: CS

The cover of this release from the Valenteens is a beat up Big Muff, one of the greatest fuzz pedals ever created. If you love that guitar accessory as much as I do, then this album will not disappoint. From the second you hit play, you hear the sonic hum, grind, and feedback and then an eardrum-disintegrating guitar assault of an album. It’s fast, it’s aggressive, but it has some real tenderness in terms of songwriting. This cassette hits all the right notes for me.
