A deeper look at the grooves pressed into the It’s A Matter Of Time – The Complete PALP Session LP by Reverend Beat-Man & The Underground. In this era of digital production, rare is the album which feels and sounds dirty. Now, I don’t mean “dirty” in the sense that it was recorded poorly or the sound quality is poor, I mean the music feels dirty in that, after listening, a record leaves listeners feeling so unclean that listeners don’t...

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into a vinyl copy of Lost Time by Tacocat. Although Tacocat has gained a reputation as our lovable party garage punk band, I think of them as “Oh, that band.” You see, I have this split 7-inch of Ghost Mice and Tacocat that I think about every time I think about this band. I got this 7-inch years ago because I really like the Ghost Mice. Tacocat was a lovely inclusion and their...
