Alright, with this record I am all caught up on the Matador Singles Club 7"s that have been sent out to date. As I said earlier in the week, there's still a few more out there and I'm hopeful that they're good ones. No singles club from Matador in 2014, but I'm hopeful to start getting them from the Merge Records series soon. Again, I am a real sucker for singles clubs...
Tony Molina is another great surprise from Matador. Again, I was unfamiliar with him prior to this release, but I'm pretty impressed by the songs here. Everything is short fuzzy pop blasts that cram an awful lot of hooks into such short spans of time. Molina even manages to squeeze in some wacky Minibosses like guitar solos. It's a lot of bang for you buck during a 90 second long song.
It appears that there is an out of print Tony Molina full length that is being reissued by Slumberland in a few weeks, I have a feeling you may end up seeing me review that at some point as well. As has been the theme with these Matador singles, I wasn't able to find any of these songs streaming online anywhere.
