Velvet Claws, you win this time. I am nauseous. This band is like a strobe light of “I could get in to this” and “FUCKING VOMIT!!!” It literally alternates every two to three seconds. I cannot wrap my head around this. Let’s see if you can do the math: two-piece (bass and drums) band from Ontario that somehow sounds a little like the Poison Girls and Weakerthans at the same time. Don’t forget to add in something sinister and a little fucking crazy that you can’t quite put your finger on. What do you come up with?
