#7 Times New Viking "Born Again Revisited"

Bookmark Too Roads Indie Blog

 I feel like I'm going out on a limb on this one but it's just too damn good to pass up. Times New Viking's "Born Again Revisited" is a lo-fi, garage band, noise-rock fan's paradise. Each and every song, with a little relief on "No Time, No Hope", is fuzzy and distorted with barely distinguishable vocals. However, the melodies and anthemesque choruses, in context with the sound TNV have developed, in my opinion, are what make this cd unique. Despite "2/11 Dont Forget" (probably my favorite song on the album), every song is under three minutes. Definitely one of my favorite discoveries of 2009.
