Bubble & Scrape

Genre: Indie Rock; Producer (group): Sub Pop; Status: In Season

If this group were a mental patient, it’d be a manic depressive. The ups sound like a late-night assault of pots and pans with kitchen utensils, accompanied by spattering feedback. On the down side, Lou Barlow’s sensitive-guy musings are better crafted and more accessible than Bubble & Scrape’s other tunes. His anguish is so palpable you just wanna give the songs a hug. Pass the lithium, but don’t pass on a listen. B+
