Spatula - Radio Helmet 7"

The Now Sound (1994)

Spatula were kind of a middle of the road indie rock band for me. They came from that fertile Chapel Hill scene that spawned so many of my all time favorite bands that I guess it probably didn't do them any favors living in shadows that big. Spatula hang out on the more mellow side of the rock spectrum, though they can get loud and fuzzy when the need arises. The 3 songs on this 7" are all good, but not great. The A-side in particular kind of feels like it just goes on forever. I have another 7" of theirs, a split with a band called Evil Wiener that is much better, but this is still a nice trip back to the 90's.
