"Pinnacle" b / w "I Feel Alien" (Pau Wau)
Reviewed by Kevin Curtin, Fri., Nov. 20, 2015
Not unlike the Russian dog breed they're named after, young Austin trio Borzoi pounces lean, scraggly, fast. Recalling late-Eighties Sub Pop punk on "Pinnacle," guitarist Zach Wood moans tuneful Cobain apathy over a menacing two-chord hook. Flipside "I Feel Alien" toughens up via drummer Rhys Woodruff's in-your-face shouts and a jagged guitar solo by Wood worthy of Slip It In-era Greg Ginn.
