Caustic Soda - Subtle Change
One of my big gripes about the Riot Grrrl scene was that a lot of these bands had feeble rhythm sections, and even on their recorded stuff, these bands seems to drift over the place, which seems inexcusable. This band falls squarely into that camp, though I would add that I don't like the vocals, or the not-so-subtle lyrical content. "We are strychnine to the earth"? I get it. Please.
That said, download anyway, just to check it out. With the New Year coming up, I'm picking a couple out to end 2010 and to start 2011, so I'll make it up to everyone with some good stuff.
A: Subtle Change, Smoking Mirrors
B: Strychnine To The Earth
