2009 was the year of the return of the "singles club", and Columbus Discount's series was the best. Just as Year Two kicks off to an outstanding start with Lutzko Lives by the Puffy Areolas of Toledo, Ohio, Year one ends on a brilliant note! Psychedelic Horseshit's Too Many Hits double-7" is certainly the most consistently satisfying release since their first single--Who Let the Dogs Out?--way back before anyone had a preconceived notion about the band. Seriously....if you think this band's discography is a like a steaming duke with some nice lit'l bits of corn in there, stop picking through the poo of the past and have a listen to this. This is like a heap o' huitlacoche. Naturally gnarly, amply swissed, not overly fucked over...Damn near perfect! Don't know what huitlacoche is? Google it! I want you to appreciate how I went to the next level with my metáfora de maiz. Remember when Sebadoh took a turn towards punk rock on their awesome Siltbreeze single? Well, if they'd never returned from that trip, but took another turn into joyful melody with a nod to the indie-rock gods of southern Ohio's past two decades before diving into the crucial works of The Fugs and David Peel & the Lower East Side, then they might've come out sounding like this.
And Puffy Areolas??? "Lutzko Lives" just absolutely smokes! That is my new pump-up jam! This is the band I most wish I could play in right now.
