Some Velvet Sidewalk - Avalanche

Released on Calvin Johnson's (Beat Happening, Dub Narcotic Soundsystem, Halo Benders) K Records in 1992, Avalanche is a raw, low fidelity Olympia-stylee punk record. I loved just about all the bands releasing records on K in the mid/late-ninties, such as Lois, Mecca Normal, Built to Spill, Beck's One Foot in the Grave, Love As Laughter, and the Fitz of Depression. It was the Beck record that turned me on the label, introducing me to a roster of bands that, in my opinion, was rivaled only by Matador at the time. Fans of lo-fi indie rock should eat this one up.

Kicking Giant's record was really good too!
