PASHA &&& THE KINDRED SPIRITS: Demo 2019: CS

Earnest poppiness wedded—probably unintentionally—to a mildly shambolic noisiness. Sometimes it sounds like they might have Guitar Wolf tied up in the basement, sometimes it sounds like they’re trying to figure out how Thin Lizzy did their leads, but at all times it’s a sort of massive, unstoppable, irregular, unbeautiful pop boulder, slowly rolling from point A to point B, squishing grass and small lizards as it obliviously rumbles on. I am vaguely intrigued. BEST SONG: “Sweatin’ Out.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Oregon,” I had them in my bracket this year. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Are cassettes supposed to have really shitty graphics nowadays? Is that part of the thing? I ask because this lyric sheet appears printed at 72 dpi. –Rev.
