Awesome album, in my opinion the best Polvo release. Can we have some Bastro? They're always named as similar but I never checked them out.

Definitely one of the best from that area(maybe even better than the avett bros before hoes?). Damn, even posting the original album cover gives you some cred. I have the edited cover. Lame!

Strange I've never heard of Polvo... I lived near Chapel Hill in the early 90's. I really like them, thanks so much!

There was a pretty rad noise rock scene in Raleigh in the early 90s.
