forty-second module: prisoners - pass the stone c33
second full-length from cleveland, ohio's best rock band, prisoners. a huge departure from regular cylindrical territory but a worthy one to say the least. at the risk of describing something that i can't just apply a ton of adjectives and weird anecdotes to, let me say that this is the "mature", older-brother release following their "back in the ussa" lp. the band retains their killer straightforward style and cranks out ten tracks of tight, fully realized garage rock that's enough to make me rethink the genre as a whole.
don't let my lack of "rock vocabulary", the "buzz-words" or the format fool you, this is a real album by a real band. they wear their replacements & dylan influences proudly but not derivatively (jason will probably kill me for writing that last sentence) and have steadily been getting tighter, more well-oiled and just more insane since their inception (the original line-up of this band actually included myself on bass and sam goldberg on drums!). this album is definitely the height of 2k10 prisoners, one to flip over and over, but definitely just the beginning for these dudes. proud to depart from the cylindrical module for these guys.
edition of 200 pro-dubbed (???!!?), sealed tapes, only about 30 copies left.
