Red States (Tight Spot)
by Scott Hefflon
This band got unfairly pegged as part of the god-awful electroclash fad because they had a drum machine. Now they have a live drummer. Now they’re angular, new wave-obsessed bad indie rock. I can’t wait for this (bowel) movement to be over and all these bands to be as embarrassing a fad as bell bottoms, parachute pants, and baggy pants.
