AUXILIARY MAMMALS: Self-titled: 12” EP

Dissonant noise rock rules the roost here. Singer’s vocal delivery recalls Shannon Selberg, and the band itself often evinces echoes of a less pop-savvy Cows. Much of what’s here follows the same basic sound and structure, which leaves it open to the pitfall of the tunes blending into one another, but they keep the contents—and the overall running time—in digestible chunks. –Jimmy Alvarado (Auxiliary Mammals)
