    A great surprise of a debut album by this 4 piece Indie Rock group from Denton Texas.  The album has a great mix of barn-burners, slower tunes, and lo-fi numbers.  Absolutely Brilliant.   The group is lead by Guitarist/Singer Will Johnson and is only one weapon in his arsenal of sonic assault.  Additionally you can find quite a few releases under the Centro-Matic banner, a handful of albums from the slower South San Gabriel, and two solo full lengths from Johnson himself if you are interested in expanding your knowledge of his work.  I highly recommend it.

    Check out the album below in its entirety.
