Song listened to: “Heat and Panic””
Converted Price: $9.54
Worth it?: Undecided, so probably no.
The song that I listened to – “Heat and Panic” is actually pretty good. Sounds a lot like My Bloody Valentine (meets White Light/White Heat era Velvet Underground).  Lots of screeching guitar jabs, and that driving VU inspired bass/drum combo. Nice and lo-fi sounding.  Singing, at times, reminds me of that 80’s novelty xmas song by The Waitresses “Christmas Wrapping.” That will be a good thing or a bad thing.
