Butchies: Make Yr Life [Jan. 25th, 2004|01:56 pm]
collating bones
The Butchies now have four records, and Team Dresch only made two. Not fair. (The new one's on Yep Roc, too, which I guess is the sign that Mr. Lady is really truly not so happening any more.) Anyway, to the extent that I'm enjoying this one--Kaia's voice, the big split-the-seams choruses, etc.--it's mostly because it reminds me of Personal Best. And that does soothe me, in a way, but--I'm sure it's more rewarding for Kaia to be in a band where she's in musical control instead of one of several jockeying for position, but this is stylistically just the same as the other three Butchies albums; it's not going anywhere deeper. The Outfield cover at the end is pretty, although I know at least one or two of their other albums have had no-but-really-we're-serious covers on them too.
