MIDWEST VOLTAGE: Demo: CDEP

Three songs named “Song One,” “Song Two,” and “Song Three,” from these La Crosse, Wisconsin nerds. Instrumental jams with a little spaced-out synth. It sounds like it was recorded in a basement because it was recorded in a practice space. The band suggests the listener “Turn it up loud.” I concur. I love Rush, and now admit it freely. It took a few years to come to terms with my love. Fuck you, Rush rules! So, I am allowed to dig this. Go ahead, give yourself permission. –Jackie Rusted (self-released, midwestvoltage.bandcamp.com)
