Broken Water - Whet



Big thanks to Jason out in Washington for dropping this in my lap. Broken Water features a couple of the guys from Ongakubaka favorite Sisters. The music here is in the same vein, with some big nods to Sonic Youth. Unlike Sisters, Broken Water has cleaned up their sound a bit and the better production really makes the record that much more dynamic. Whet is about as good a debut LP as a band could hope for, effortlessly restraining their droning psychedelic weirdness just enough to let the fantastic songwriting shine through. Whet is out now on Raccoo-oo-oon's label Night People. Buy a dozen copies and hand them out at your little sister's graduation party while you drink warm beer and hit on her friends.
