The Cry! - S/T LP
This is a high energy band of folks from Portland making some really infectious music. There are parts that remind me of Impulse International, though the singer's vocals are more high pitched than Impluse. The guitars are bouncy and lean heavy on the treble side of the sound spectrum. Not tinny like some bands, but the vibe is more of a slap in the face than it is a warm bath.
There was a limited to 100 colored vinyl version of this record available directly from SP Records, but the shipping from Japan was just a bit more than I could justify at this exact moment in time (Totally the fault of the post office, not the fault of the label). Luckily Green Noise is also stocking the record. If there are a lot of records in your collection that have been released by Dirtnap, The Cry! will fit right in.
