White Whale- S/T 7" . Rather promising punk rock from out of nowhere. Four songs worth of tempo-shifting mature-ish punkitude, sort of in an RFTC vein, utilizing the Speedo vocal treatment, proficient bass playing, trebly guitar...the tunes whizz by, recording is nicely medium-fi. Fuzzed-out garage punk played with hardcore intensity and velocity, but still retaining the essential vocal catchiness. Not bad at all for a debut. They seem to wrestle with the tunes a little which I find endearing. Will keep an eye on these kids.
