TERMINAL BOREDOM review of the TV GHOST 7"
"Legend has it these are the very earliest TV Ghost recordings from 2007, when they were called Television Ghost, recorded in a basement to 4-track, the tape of which was supposedly then dropped in a puddle and nearly rendered inaudible. Both of these tunes did appear on the Die Stasi 12", a record which I like more now than I did upon its release. Hearing this alongside the new LP certainly clearly delineates almost two versions of the band, with 'Cold Fish' being the gap-bridging record. That early line-up (and the "Atomic Rain" 7" was such a fantastic debut) I had a chance to catch live, fittingly in a basement (Club Atlantis to be exact), could best be characterized as a bunch of stoned and drunk kids in the midst of a total clusterfuck, wearing broken sunglasses at night and playing broken instruments poorly. In retrospect you could still see Tim Ghost's vision rather clearly through the murk. And this record is all murk, "The Amputee" crawling slug-like across the moldy cement floor, the synth creating a sickening and gluey omnipresent muck which the guitar pokes at like a child with a stick and the bass playing rubber cement to the various parts. The tape warble actually acts as another instrument in this case, giving the song an extra layer of vertigo-inducing sludge. "The Mold" (how wonderfully fitting) comes on like a anxiety attack, the synth turning to some wheezing sing-song repetition bolstered by a thudding drums-falling-down-the-stairs rhythm, sheer panic on tape. The limitations of the source material here are of no matter, and as a person who has a penchant for the shit-fi (which this certainly qualifies as) it's quite interesting to hear these recordings now, as TV Ghost are in the upper echelon of today's American bands in my opinion. It makes for a fulfilling comparison to where they are today, both tunes stack up from the songwriting/aesthetic perspective, and while it's certainly not the best TV Ghost record or most essential piece of the puzzle (and I don't think anyone is claiming it is), it will certainly satisfy the band's current fans looking for some demo-kicks and might even sate those who still claim their debut was their best record. I dig it as both a lover of the shit-fi and as a snapshot of young teen punks in action. Scum stats: 300 copies on purple vinyl with download.(RK)"

Seatlle’s THE PHARMACY have spent the majority of the last decade touring the US and Europe relentlessly on their infectious brand of pop garage. In between tours they’ve released a slew of singles and three critically acclaimed LPs, cementing them as the current purveyors of the pop garage genre. Frontman SCOTT YODER concocts epic pop gems that aren’t obscured by mountains of fuzz or clched lyrics—all while staying true to their lo-fi perspective on sound. Four songs in all. 2/3rds of THE PHARMACY play in the bedroom pop band FUZZY CLOAKS!

"Kerry Davis of Red Aunts (one of my faves of the early 90s all-femme bands, because they managed to sound genuinely wild and fucked up) returns with some slinky, strange garage rockers that sound more like the awesome, moody echoes in a room-bound teenager's dome than stuff a 20-year rock vet would produce. I assume the band name is pronounced "tears" as in water from your eyes, but this tears (as in rips) it up!" - Roctober!
"This track tagged “Heisse Hexe” happened to be my favorite of the few — although they’re all rather glorious — mostly thanks to its post-punk variations, that will leave any Fall fan quite satisfied, and silky smooth vocals. By the time the bridge/outro is done kicking your ass, an appetite for more will naturally be sure to follow." - Neon Musical Insight
"Bad ass garage rock jam from Kerry Davis (formerly of “Red Aunts” and “The Screws”).”Eat People” is an in your face rocker with a riff for the ages! Listening to it will be the 2 most rock n roll minutes of your day." - The Music Hoarder

"Old Lady" video by Trent Fox and the Tenants
"The song ["Mess Around"] — lean, serrated and a little dangerous, with an infectious yeah-yeah-yeah refrain — is the title track (and opening number) from a new five-song 7-inch EP, due Feb. 22 on Kind Turkey. Truth be told, all five songs are killer garage-rock rave-ups, full of scuzzy guitar, cacophonous drums and snotty lyrics about memorable ex-girlfriends, mom jokes and scoring with that fetching older woman from around the way."

"While the record starts out strongly, it’s the B-side that really defines the record. Following the first three songs, which mix garage singalongs with dirty lyricism and a touch of swagger, the singer ups the ante by adding more emotion to his delivery, effectively combining the arrogant swagger with a relatable good guy, all layered into the hooky bass and the peppy guitar and drum. While the r’n’r sounds dirty and up-to-no-good, it simultaneously reflects real emotional consternation and reflection. By the time of the doo-wop fused “Sounds Fine to Me,” it’s hard not to sing along to his suffering, even if the lyrical coping comes in the form of a Mario 3 reference." - 7.5/10

"Like Shannon and the Clams or Nobunny, Wheels on Fire owe a lot to the 50's harmony garage rock, it's a straightforward homage to that stripped down rock sound which is probably going to stick around in some form or another forever." - 7 Inches
"Four tracks of seriously awesome blues-influenced garage jams." - Styrofoam Drone
