Slender Tape 2

$5.00

"This shit is completely and totally inept. There's some synth in there somewhere. It sounds like they're just learning how to use it. Some fucking jerk wad is barely hanging onto a beat while hitting a briefcase or something. There's an out of tune guitar. Some samples pop up in the middle of songs in a completely different volume. The whole thing sounds like it was recorded on a walkman. For the most part, its kind of like an engaging field recording of idiotic fuckheads huffing glue, but other parts will be a test of your patience (acapella rendition of "take me out to the ballgame" anyone?). Someone said this is members of CRAZY SPIRIT. People say lots of things." MRR

"Total no budget garbage rock, complete with purposefully tuneless yelping, gurgling synth and a drum set that seems to consist of a single coffee can. Random spoken word samples that pop up between and sometimes in the middle of tracks, and the entire thing feels like it was written, recorded and produced in about 15 minutes. I heard about these guys because they are tangentially related to NYC hardcore band Crazy Spirit but this doesn't sound anything like that. Includes an Capella cover of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame".

Sample lyrics: "I wanna seven up, seven up, seven up, fuck you, seven up, for my birthday, it's my birthday, up, a can of seven up."

Same sounds on both sides."
