Falconhelmini It's bands like this that first got me into the Kill Rock Stars label almost 25 years ago. The label lost cred with me when they started putting out stuff like the Decemberists (yech!) but it's good to see them back in the weirdo skronk punk game. A great album recommended for all old school KRS fans Favorite track: Boyce.

about

Mating Surfaces is the second full length from Portland, Oregon's Lithics. Twelve tightly wound fragments of brittle abstract twin guitar, impellent rhythm, and absurd, imagistic lyricism.

"A stern danceable sound that summons cut up snapshots of Su Tissue and Mark E Smith, an imagined landscape where Captain Beefheart hits that 99 Records “Too Many Creeps” beat."
-Layla Gibbon (Maximum Rocknroll, Skinned Teen).
