This S/T, by The C.I.A. is an urgent musical notice. I feel it immediately. The pointed vocal cadence & lyrics of Denée Segall (Lamps, VIAL) is a sharp scythe, and the actual time is…Now. I feel the same distress call and disposition from Crass records like Penis Envy or DIRT. in […]

If you’re interested in the […]

Who do we become when we live our dreams? It’s all here — the high hairdos, the dreams and schemes, the tender camp, the wedding bell fantasias and chaste tragedies.
