WHITE WALLS: Self-titled: CD

Odd duck here. There’s a bit of shoegaze bluster here, but, on the whole, it sounds up to its eyeballs in mid-period Sonic Youth. The guitars are often much more overdriven than that more celebrated band usually employs, but there’s also less of an edge to the songs here. A bit derivative, I reckon, and the songs kinda blend into one another, but not a bad listen on the whole if you thought Daydream Nation or Goo were nifty.
