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.
