COLOR TV: Self-titled: LP

Gordon from Deranged really did me a solid when he suggested this Minnesota band’s debut 7” to me a couple of years ago. I was instantly hooked by their pop weirdness along with their seemingly impossible ability to be so tight yet swirling in chaos and feeling like the songs are on the verge of falling apart. There was one 7” after that on Neck Chop but in the back of my brain I have been clamoring for a full length, and here it is. The LP is a perfect continuation of what Color TV has already established. Musically, I have them living in the same neighborhood as Marked Men and Maniac and that’s a pretty good place to reside. This album makes my eyelids sweat like only my favorite hot sauces can. Endless spins in Castle Stranglehold. –Ty Stranglehold (Deranged)
