CONTRANISTAS: “Center Negative” b/w “Memory Divided by Time”: 7”

Jul 20, 2021

Instrumental rock duo from Bakersfield, Calif. Side A builds and moves with cool guitar echoes and a melodic bassline. It’s catchy, like if Tegan And Sara put an instro break in the middle of Sainthood. Side B’s a little more moody and spacey, with a nice energy ticking under the surface. Each song clocks in at over five minutes, but feels like its own short story. I’d drive fast to this. –Chris Terry (Killer Kern)
