CARL SAGAN’S SKATE SHOES: Self-titled: CD

These Austin dudes seem to be really down with the ‘90s noise rock. I can hear shades of the Amphetamine Reptile label in there, along with maybe some Jesus Lizard moments and maybe some of Eric Gaffney’s Sebadoh output. All stuff I really dig, but I just wasn’t wrapping my head around this. I bet if I give this another spin when I am in one of those weird, noisy moods, it will totally click for me. –Ty Stranglehold (Super Secret, supersecretrecords.com)
