The World's Lousy With Ideas Vol. 8
Critical Mass
Label: Almost Ready

by Abigail Everdell

Since 2007, the World's Lousy series, compiled by Brooklyn obsessive Harry Howes, has excavated worthy punk/garage/shitgaze lesser-knowns (including Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Pink Noise) on three- or four-song, limited-run seven-inches. The inaugural full-length gathers exclusive cuts from more prominent, scene-making groups. The result is a sort of (Jay) Reatard Nation manifesto, surveying a range of sounds bubbling up through the underground's fuzz- muck -- from Thee Oh Sees' rollicking psych to Times New Viking's cement-basement pop to Blank Dogs' warped semi-goth. A vital document of the lo-fi renaissance.
