Album Review: Middle Class Rut
25 Years EP
“I was born and I’ll die and that’s it”. So say this Sacramento, California duo. Oh, the guilt! To have most things going for you and still act like a miserable fucker must be harder than having, I dunno, real problems? Why this lot have been celebrated as a visceral alt.rock time bomb instead of being lambasted for sounding like a poor man’s Jane’s Addiction is anyone’s guess. As a wise bunch of wayfarers from west London once said, when you’re in a rut, you gotta get out of it. In the case of Middle Class Rut they should just get out.
