Tracklist: Her Name Is Calla - Maw

Busy time for Her Name Is Calla, previewing their forthcoming tour with a free sampler and a limited edition 10" EP. The lead and title track from that EP... well, it's not the HNIC you may know, even when the dramatic trombone blasts come in halfway through. It's three and a half minutes and delves into some dirty mid-west Americana insistency, a grimy overdriven guitar sound parked just above sludge level, like Sonic Youth warming up without the heroics/histrionics and if they were packed together much tighter within silt. It's not post-rock or the wracked longeurs of The Quiet Lamb, but it's not strictly cathartic noise either. It's people who, as ever, know precisely what they're doing.
