This single gives me a boner, even if it took the lab' a month after they banked my dough to put it in the mail to me (not that I'm bitching too much, plus it isn't even half the bummer that Siltbreeze is putting on me right now). Anyway, pretty much everything I own by these guys is astounding-- some Italian single that's a ripper in its own right, as well as a split LP with Teen Anger on ye mighty Telephone Explosion-- but what's it now, July? This one's got single of the half-year potential written all over it. I mean, this isn't your usual lo-fi donk that you've come to expect; the guitars roar like friggin' diesel trains, instead of plinking like banjos, and the drums could punch holes in your speakers. "Obliteration" has a great power-pop vocal hook, too, almost like The Move or Mersey Beat or something. Check out the song here, and then get on this shit sorta quickly (500 pressed, so they've probably still got one on hold for you).
