SLUG
Death by Salt II (SLUGMag.com) Your favorite club warriors are included (The Wolfs, Starmy, Red Bennies, Thunderfist, Tolchock Trio, et al), but some of the best tracks on SLUG magazine’s latest local comp come from bands you’ll rarely, if ever, see live: Flying Missiles’ Stooges-fueled "You Tore My Heart Out," Andale!’s fuzzy-catchy "Hit the Ground," Fifi Murmur’s haunting "Message From the Grave," Silvox’s gorgeous "Jaded." They all stand equal to cuts like Form of Rocket’s scald-rock and electronic and hip-hop inclusions from A.Vanvranken, Deadbeats … too many to fit. (BF)
