Merchandise: Totale Nite 12"
3rd LP from these hardcore punks turned indie darlings. I could see the band easily falling into several different traps at this stage in their development--repeating past successes, overreaching, etc.--but really what they've made here is just another Merchandise record. It expands the band's sound in significant ways (like the awesome, Pere Ubu-ish title track) while retaining those dreamy, delay-rich textures that are the most identifiable aspect of their sound. As yet there's no reason to abandon the Merchandise bandwagon. Night People Records
