The ZoltarsShould I Try Once More? (Sundae)
"I'm living off of pills, and I never pay my bills," sighs crestfallen Jared Leibowich over monotonous, factory-pressed guitar. The low-spirited local quartet's debut deals chapped, barren, smokestack-spiked post-punk, lifeless in its sprawl. Honesty or middle school poetry? "I will give you all my heart/we will never be apart." I hope I'm not getting the joke, for their sake.
