top of the mid morning! if youre anything like me, part two, you probably dont frequent pitchfork too much these days. i, honestly, just cant stomach it. anyway, they talked about a guided by voices cassette only comp that wild animal kingdom records recently put out that features a bunch of bands i have never heard of except for my boys, hallelujah the hills. the cassette only release has since sold out, and i really wanted to buy one, but w/o a tape player it would have done me zero good. nice to look at, i say i have it, i suppose? here is hth’s take on one of my favorite gbv songs, “chicken blows” and a few other tracks off three of their releases which are all definitely worth getting into, buy em via misra records.
