Pick of the Week 5/16/05

Straitjacket Fits -- Blow (Arista/Flying Nun) 2003

More Flying Nun goodness. They've got a pop grounding, but noisier and dirtier. In some ways these guys remind me of Sonic Youth, but I'm not quite satisfied with that comparison. Surprisingly, this album tops Melt, which is also quite impressive.

It was my last listen before bed last night, and the first disc I played this morning. And I got it used for under $4.
