WITCHING WAVES: Crystal Café: LP

Was kinda thrown by the name a bit—figured it was gonna be some sorta death rock adventure—so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be something else. Noise pop is the order of the day here, catchy and abrasive, sometimes sounding like a weird mix of Sonic Youth, the Wipers, and some obscure Crass-affiliated band.
