Mind Spiders - Meltdown LP - White Vinyl (/200) & Black Vinyl

Dirtnap (2012)

2nd full length album by Mind Spiders who are fronted by Mark Ryan, also known to many as one of the singers in the Marked Men. While the 1st Mind Spiders album was mostly recorded by Mark alone, Meltdown sees the band becoming more of a band, with other folks playing & recording with him.

I think Meltdown is a huge leap forward for Mind Spiders. Though I liked side A of their debut, I felt that side B kind of devolved into a bit of a mess. Meltdown is much more consistent, though you will be rewarded for just sitting down and listening to this record as opposed to having it be background noise. It's the kind of album that sounds best when you are really paying attention to the details. As always, Dirtnap ran a limited to 200 version on colored vinyl, and I was lucky enough to grab one, keeping the collection going once again.
