WHITE WHALE: “No Solace” b/w “Waxing”: 7”

The A-side sounds like High Tension Wires meets the Modern Machines. (Or is it more appropriate to say it sounds like Riverboat Gamblers meets Bruce Springsteen?) The B-side sounds like Samiam meets Shang-A-Lang. (Or is it more appropriate to say it sounds like Jawbreaker meets Gaunt?) I’m going to steal a line from my favorite politician Leslie Knope, and say the White Whale’s “ambiguous ethnic blend perfectly represents the dream of the American melting pot” except with music instead of skin color.
