crisis arm / dogs

Spied on band camp, new to us and new from the Chicago based vinyl / cassette imprint already dead tapes is an essential split offering that pits together the ear ware of Crisis Arm and Dogs. If we were doing a list of year end favourite singles I’d be guessing that Crisis Arm’s quite exquisitely arresting ‘fall’ would be making a last minute shout, a shimmer toned shoe gazed lovely that moors itself on a celestial plateau sighted somewhere on a lunar footing between my bloody valentine, the cranes and curve, all swoon swept dream drifts and dissolving heavenly halos seduced in vapour trailed raptures. That’s not to say that the Dogs are slouches for ’book of Marx’ is a totally different beast, hailing from LA this lot blend a curious weave of post / math rock with a new wave flair, this track finding itself distinctly cut from an austerely edgy cloth upon whose finery a gruff styled Wire sonically converse with a slightly DIY and roughened around the edges Magazine, damn fine if you ask me. Only 50 copies available. http://www.alreadydeadtapes.bandcamp.com
