As far as "new" Unsane goes, I thought Blood Run was a decent record....until I heard Visqueen! Wow!! This is my 2nd favorite Unsane record next to Scattered, Smothered, and Covered. Production is immaculate, and song writing is top notch. If you've never heard Unsane, get this album, and tell people to fuck off that razz you for only having "new" Unsane!! This album kills!! Unsane has re-invented noise rock with this one, and is well oiled once again!! Can't wait for more.

Robert Pollard may have alienated some GBV fans when he hired a new back up crew. Especially when the "new" album is such a departure, production-wise from the usual lo-fi recordings Pollard & co have become infamous for. In the same foul swoop tho, he's managed to recruit a schwack of new ones with Mag Earwig!. I've always dug the lo-fi ramblin's of GBV....but this new sound was kind of refreshing. Some stand-outs..."I am a Tree", "Bulldog Skin", "I am Produced", "Little Lines".

Mix Tape Vol. 2 - Covers!!!

I`m really trying to update this more often. The descriptions might get a bit lazier, but i`ll try ta get music up here more at least.
So...I`m a sucker for covers...that are well done of course. Here`s 60-some covers that give me goosebumps. You`ll have to excuse the bad tagging, file names, and bitrate on some of these again. Most of them don`t say who the cover is of either, so you`ll have to Google it or something.
