"Red Medicine" CD (Dischord)
Where can I get a prescription? I could use a steady dose of this tense, edgy rock composed of fractured, melted scraps of metallic refuse. This album makes me feel like I'm right on the verge of waking up from a nightmare, one of those bleak, black, horrifying dreams that never seem to end. Then, the last three songs kick in like a hand shaking you into consciousness. This is the cure.
