FRUSTRATIONS - Negative Reflections


Cassette version of NEGATIVE REFLECTIONS, the second LP by Detroits' FRUSTRATIONS. 9 noisy jams that flirt equally with punk and psych, but completely avoid the usual cliches associated with either of those terms.This album sees them getting a little more into some heavy, woozy drones than the last, and it totally works. Can possibly be compared to Sonic Youth or Spacemen 3, but the sound is completely original. Members of this band can also be found in Human Eye, Kommie Kilpatrick and running X Records, where you can find the vinyl version (and tons of other records that you need)

Limited to 100 on blue cassettes, $6 ppd in the USA, international customers will receive an email with further shipping info.
