GREEN/BLUE: Self-titled: LP

This debut from Green/Blue from Minneapolis is a series of wraithlike, edgy pop songs with dual male/female vocals from Jim Blaha of The Blind Shake and Annie Sparrows of The Soviettes. They’re a supergroup all around, with Hideo Takahashi from Sweet J.A.P. on bass and Danny Henry of The Soviettes on drums. It’s the kind of project that if not self-released, only a bold label like Slovenly would touch. Uncommercial in all respects, it’s one of those moment-in-time exemplars of how punks are real, bona fide artists, capable of horizon-expanding creativity. It’s a superlative record all around. –Art Ettinger (Slovenly)
