VARIOUS ARTISTS: Welcome to the Golden State Vol 2: EP

The Imposters track, “Tourists Are Invading Hermosa Beach” is great. Sounds like something you would hear on some early ‘80s L.A. area compilation. This alone is reason enough to pick this record up. Waco Fuck are pretty good, with a mid-tempo number. Dry Rot come out of left field with a countrified number that’s dark, spaced out, and actually pretty good. A nice change from all the aggression that surrounds the song. The other bands on here are Black Triangles, Migraine, and Crucial Cause.  –M.Avrg (Cowabunga, cowabungarecords.com)
