VARIOUS ARTISTS: PVC H.Ex Compilation #1: Cassette

Washed-out, lo-fi-everything rock. At its best, it rings true with a nostalgic approach to the underbelly of ‘80s rock. At its worst, it’s a meandering sludge of incoherent bullshit. It averages out to a pretty fun compilation. Feels like channel surfing on basic cable late at night, watching scenes from various low budget movies. The sport becomes what strangeness you expect to find next.
