The Golden Pony & Big Bullet Booking Present:
LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES (Sub Pop Records)
"Dereconstructed is a careening, road raging, all night party of a record. Informed by a distinctly southern hoodoo, it is a master class in authentic Gulf Coast choogle. Having cut his teeth in the Dexateens, Lee Bains lll has been properly schooled in how to throw down, so much so that even his hyper literate musings are no match for the blown out distortion that gives this record its blistering urgency."
AZORES (HVA indie dark pop)
"Tightly wound power-pop hooks blend with soulful tales of existential anguish on Azores’s Copper Beach, making for a wonderfully fun bummer. Catchy melodies and pulsating rhythms pull your ear ever closer so guitarist/lyricist Vince Paixão can beautifully sing you his sorrows. The album strengthens and gains momentum as it builds with the standout ragers “Strawberry Cowtails” and “Communion” offering a slight glimmer of hope. “Palate Cleanse,” an acoustic guitar instrumental closing track, washes away the emotional pain as well as the full 90s alternative production." - Whurk Magazine
