JANELLE: Fault Lines: LP

Grungy bass chords, washy synths, and ‘80s Euro-University vocals. If you had a college radio show twenty-five or thirty years ago, you were glad when you heard the DJ after you played bands like these when you tuned in on your drive back home, because you knew that was one less band up with which you needed to keep. Not sure if this is worse than Bratmobile’s The Real Janelle EP, but “Janelle Janelle” by the Queers it sure ain’t. BEST SONG: “Never.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Slow Heart.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Ha! I plead the fifth. ­–Rev. Nørb (FDH, fdhmusic.com)
