DACIOS, THE: Beyond the Bottom Hour: LP

There’s a sticker affixed to the shrink wrap on the Dacios’ album that drops names such as Patti Smith, MC5, and Jason Spaceman. I suppose the vocalist does sound a bit like Patti and the band does like to use a lot of pedals and Orange amps, but save for the song “Horse Attacks” there really isn’t much on this record that doesn’t sound overly grandiose and flat. –Juan Espinosa (Homeless, homelessvinyl.com.au)
