Glow God: House of Distractions 12"
Debut LP from this new Texas band featuring one of the guys from Video, Wiccans, and Wax Museums. This is a very different sound, though... straight up catchy, heavy-as-hell 90s-style noise rock. This is definitely on the poppier end of that sound, recalling prime-era Nirvana more than, say, the Melvins or Unsane. There's still tons of bottom end and punk propulsion, but the songs are mega catchy... at times it reminds me quite a bit of early Mudhoney, but heavier. There are also moments of real beauty here, almost recalling the melodic whirr of My Bloody Valentine. A great LP from a label that has not done us wrong yet!
