Awkward, yappy, yelpy punk from these Portlandians. Things largely comprise squeals, shrieks and whinnies which have been testily corralled into some loose sort of order and ultimately compelled to sound like a blend of Drive Like Jehu, NASA Space Universe and The VSS. The guitars are only lightly distorted, and what appears to be a surf influence wheels blithely in and out, serving to add another layer of oddball off-kilteredness to what was already a fairly strange listen. All told it's pretty good, but liable to make your eyes hurt and your tongue loll if you keep it looping for too long at a time.
