Retainers: Waste of Time 7"
Brand new single from these Minneapolis garage rockers courtesy of their old label Fashionable Idiots Records. The sound is the same--raw and distorted--but it sounds to me like, over the years, the Retainers have been steadily writing more and more complex songs. There's just a little more here to hang your hat on than on those earlier singles (which, don't get me wrong, were great in their own right). Definitely recommended if you liked the Retainers' earlier stuff for hardcore-ish garage rock in general.
