WYLA: Mean: CD

According to Wyla’s page on Bandcamp, Mean was originally released in 2018, so I’m not sure why it’s coming my way now. Regardless, this Asheville, N.C. quartet has a sound that is somewhat like early- to mid-’90s Dischord bands noodling around with prog rock and stuffing in some occasional jazziness. The record seems continuously to threaten to tumble into the world of the experimental, but never quite gets there. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Duck Sauce)
