RENO CASINOS, THE: Art Art Art Singles Vol. 1: CD

This is garagey, poppy, and mopey in all of the best ways possible. I found myself with the song “Don’t Wanna” stuck in my head hours after I initially listened to this the first time, cementing this as something that I knew I really had to dig into. Covers of Hüsker Dü and The Bartlebees are great, and the eight other songs are very Sacramento-sounding in their mildly quirkiness and high quality. Good stuff. –Mark Twistworthy (Secret Center, secretcenterrecords.bandcamp.com)
