PRIMITIVE HANDS: Bad Men in the Grave: LP

Mix of garage and roots rock that at varying times has echoes of Neil Young, the Velvet Underground’s more “rock” moments, and a countrified Love amidst the mid-fi stomping. The whole works surprisingly well, and the decision not to drown things in a stereotypical wall-of-shit sound was a wise one. –Jimmy Alvarado (Alien Snatch)
