MOMOTAROS, THE: Semi-Canon: CS

These guys make some classic Midwestern rock’n’roll with semi-screamed vocals that recall Ian Svenonius in Nation Of Ulysses. The tape meanders from college rockish tunes, to slightly more abrasive ones, to even pop punkish tracks featuring multi-part vocal harmonies. The use of synths throughout all the rocking and the slightly unhinged quality of the vocals set this tape apart. A jammer, for sure. –Lyle (Rare Plant)
