ATX UndergroundConcrete: Volume One (2BEntertainment)
Masochistic and monolithic, this grueling 18-song sampler marks the easiest entry point into Austin's industrial underground, but there's nothing here that sounds even remotely new or exciting. Relative highlights include Exit's aquatic ambience ("Understanding Our Razing"), the siren chill of Lust Murder Box ("Lesser of Two"), and Happy Panjoma's electroshock therapy ("Subaquatic Cellular Supersmile").
