TOWARD SPACE: Gently with a Chainsaw: CD

Wow, Toward Space are a real good time, and I had low expectations. From what appears to be their second album, these Richmond folks smash out twelve, blues-inspired (and even gospel-y at times) garage in homage to something like the MC5 or the BellRays. Looking forward to hearing more. –Steve Adamyk (Self-released, towardspace.bandcamp.com)
