AFS v. 199 ~ Takin' the Night By Storm!


The brand-new LP by Monterey, Mexico's Los Llamarada has finally dropped, and it rockets to the top of the list of the great albums of 2008 next to Hairdryer Peace by The Hospitals, the Hank IV's Refuge in Genre, Dan Melchior's Christmas for the Crows, and a handful of others that are the cream of what is a really great crop. When will 2007-2008 be declared a halcyon age, d'ya think? I've enjoyed everything I've heard by Los Llamarada so far, but with Take the Night, the band has finally revealed themselves to be turning a corner in terms of recording fidelity. Side A and the first half of B. Much of what you've heard from the band so far has been self-recorded on a boombox. Last year, the band graduated up to a four-track machine. After much trial and error, they finally nailed it, and the results of that newly gained mastery is the first two-thirds of the LP. The last three songs are from their Live in Studio A session at KDVS during their September 2007 west coast tour. Take the Sky varies in sound from mesmerizing psych-punk seances that'll levitate your chakras, to strains of panic-stricken distress calls. This effectively makes all their previous output damn near obsolete. I give this my highest recommendation!

And y'know what else???

This 7" by the Life Partners is absolutely scathing and great! Weirdpunk that's funny and tastes a lit'l like hardcore, and it's gotta meanstreak! This B-side shoulda been copped by California's No-on-Prop-4 coalition!

Also, the best drone album in a loooong time is this Zephyrus LP by Squim. It just sorta snuck on my and is now vying to get in that best-of-'08 list.

If I can find time this week before leaving for vacation (running up Eastern Oregon desert, then cutting across to Portland through the Columbia Gorge, and finally down the coast of Oregon and Northern California), I will post some reviews.
