Truly - Heart And Lungs

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1991

As a follow up to the Soundgarden from yesterday, here's the band Hiro Yamaoto started after leaving that group. He got the drummer of Screaming Trees, and the vocalist of Storybook Krooks on board as well, and away they went. On to murky, catchy, grungy (dare I say?) world of Truly. Certainly not metallic like Soundgarden, they have more in common with the epic dark pop of Screaming Trees, but without the booming vocals. There's also a touch of Mudhoney styled garage rave-ups in there too.
This was their first record, and it's a good one. Give it a whirl.

it's the guy from seinfeld now, but yes, richard dawson is a legend. remember that fool in "running man"? genius.

also, you can't read the red text over the gray background. i say, go black background, and smaller text, but that's just me.
