Calvin Krime - You're Feeling So Attractive

Label: Amphetamine Reptile
Year: 1998

The second album by the band oft-overshadowed as "the band Har Mar Superstar was in before he was a Ron Jeremy look-alike", and probably the best material the band ever recorded. You get to hear all of their influences in one solid package; the Minneapolis hardcore sounds of Guzzard, the Olympia art-emo sounds of Unwound, the Chicago noise rock sounds of Shellac, the D.C. epic emo punk sounds of Nation Of Ulysses, and the San Diego spazz rock sound of Drive Like Jehu. All that for the low, low price of Calvin Krime! You can't lose.
I'm not promising any new ground will get broken on this record, but I'll also promise this ain't just a nostalgia trip. I guess it's somewhere in the middle, the kind of shit you'll like if you like this kind of shit. N'ah mean?
