Fair Ohs - 'Salt Flats'
A semi-discordant cacophony
More semi-discordant cacophony from a band who get continually branded 'tropical' (presumably by people whose only association with the tropics is an Um Bongo in their lunchbox once a week). This is infinitely more tuneful (and enjoyable) than the band they're most compared to, discordant Smell punks Abe Vigoda. 'Salt Flats' is as close in DNA to LA's Fools Gold, and all the better for it.
