Blank Dogs, 'Under and Under' (In the Red)

Critical Mass

by Joe Gross

Blank Dogs, a.k.a. Mike Sniper (formerly of garage punks DC Snipers), spent the past few years spewing dim-fi post-punk at a logorrheic pace, a Guided by Voices for überhipsters who worship the Cure's "Seventeen Seconds" and leave the house only when forced off the sofa. Just seven of the 15 songs here break three minutes, which is smart, as Sniper turns rubbery bass lines and thin synths into goth-flavored bubblegum pop.But one wonders what would happen if the music was scaled up in size: "Disintegration" or disintegration?
