RED TEETH: Light Bender: 7”

This is some serious nerd punk. I’m not talking about that “I watch Game of Thrones and enjoy craft beer” bullshit that passes for nerdery these days. I’m talking full-on writing songs in the basement surrounded by stacks of yellowing Michael Moorcock novels while your buds play Warhammer shirtless in the background. So get this, the title track is an epic tale of a battle between a light bender and a sound bender. It rides in on a fuzzy, stuttering concoction of beats and riffs that make you want to push your glasses up and squint at the lyric sheet. This record is definitely worth nerding out over. –MP Johnson (GTG, gtgrecords.bandcamp.com)
