Black Zinfandel: I'm Not Sorry Cassette



Demo tape from this Raleigh, NC band who have been kicking around for at least a year at this point. Broadly, I'd put their sound along the lines of twangy neo-garage a la the kind of stuff that Slovenly Records tends to put out, but I really like Black Zin a lot more than most of those bands. I think there's a pop sensibility at work that really makes this hang together much better, and the band isn't afraid to bounce around difference sub-genres within the broad garage umbrella. I also love Brian's vocals, which remind me a lot of Chris Bailey from the Saints. By the way, Seth from Sorry State played bass on this and Daniel from Sorry State recorded it, so these guys are definitely part of the SS family!X
