Various Artists - The World's Lousy With Ideas Vol. 8

You don't have to sit through tediously shitty albums by Sic Alps, Tyvek, Thee Oh Sees, Times New Viking, Blank Dogs, and other heavy-hitters in the nĂ¼ lo-fi crap revival. Just throw on this 30 minute release for a snapshot of the scene in action. The shitgaze Nuggets? No New York? Fat Music For Fat People? DFA Compilation #2? Pick your favorite! The variety of bands here is essential, in my humble opinion. Having said that, everything still sounds the same except the Pink Reason song, an apocalyptic juggernaut that bulldozes everything in its path, including the eight songs that came before it. Like a fucking hurricane. Watch the danger birds fly over head. Look, there's Cortez dancing across the water. Are you catching my drift here? I guess it doesn't sound that much like Crazy Horse but it's the first thing I thought of. The Intelligence and Vivian Girls songs are good, too.

Rating: One of the great musical artifacts of our time. The other volumes are even better because there aren't as many songs.
