Gas Food Lodging/Green on Red (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jan 21, 2003; Lead Performance: Green On Red; Genre: Reissues

Gravity Talks (Wounded Bird) This L.A. (by way of Tucson) band is associated with the early-'80s Paisley Underground scene, but it never had much in common with bands like the Dream Syndicate, opting instead for a rootsy guitar-and-organ sound (garage Americana?). It's great to have their early work back in print, even if these reissues are a bit confusing, with the first and third albums paired on a single CD and superior second album Gravity Talks available on a different label. Both: B+
