UV-TV: Glass: LP

The festivities start off aggressive—taut, punchy garage punk with slashing guitars, a rhythm section that’s digging in their heels and pummeling away, all counterbalanced by flat, laid back vocals that’d go just as well fronting a straight pop or shoegaze band. Just when you’re sure you’ve got ‘em pegged, they switch gears around the midpoint and veer off into potent post-punk land. Sound scary to ye? Maybe, but they fuckin’ nail it from the raging opener to the softer swan song. –Jimmy Alvarado (Deranged)
