Reviews:
No, I'm not writing to endorse a collection of songs by a famous serial killer. The Albright here is a Sacramento one-man band, and though he isn't out for blood, his music does warrant adjectives like "brutal" and "barbaric." First Four Years collects his singles from 2009 to 2012, which includes monolithic punk bashers like "I'm on Drugs", "The Hate Van", "I'm Your Malfunction", and "Let's Fuck!". And although this dude knows how to turn it up extremely loud, there are some catchy melodies behind all that noise (like on the vowel-based wail of "Headphones"). Mapled just pressed this on limited edition vinyl, but tapes are available, too. - Pitchfork

This is a tape of this one-man recording project from Sacramento, CA that falls into maniac, overblown garage rock affair with so much treble-y feedback that it would make LEBENDEN TOTEN fans take notice. Beneath the layers of noise, you can peel back some hooks and impassioned yelping that make for a good garage-punk release. Fans of PERSONAL AND THE PIZZAS, UZI RASH, and NOBUNNY should take note. -Maximum RocknRoll

This one man band from Sacramento, CA does a rip on the Black Flag album of the same name, even wearing a Black Flag shirt on the cartoon cover. You have eighteen mostly short songs covering the time from 2009–2012 that were originally released as singles, plus three unreleased songs. He plays really fuzzed-out garage punk with some hooks thrown in and a lot of energy. The production is a bit rough, but it makes the recording work, kind of like finding an old cassette that got beat up, but still has tunes that you really like on it. Only 250 hand-numbered copies made, 100 yellow, and 150 clear. - Razorcake
