The Hair & Skin Trading Company - Over Valence


This one comes courtesy of a guy I know out in Washington by the name of Jason. He has a real knack for uncovering great records that somehow have not garnered the critical praise and success they deserve. Over Valence is a record that I'm sure every reader of this blog will enjoy. The group features former members of Loop, and creates music that is equal parts Jesus & Mary Chain and early Sonic Youth. All of this is filtered through what appears to be the band's collective unabashed love for krautrock. They don't make great records like this anymore, and it completely blows my mind that more people haven't heard this band.

I can safely say that everything I've ever downloaded from this blog I've ended up liking, a lot. This record is great, and thanks for all this.

I have to agree with Shally...I just found you out and I'm pretty floored. This is a good record, but I'm really excited about The Go's Free Electricity, been lookin for that one for a long time. You're doin a great job. Thanks.
