Your Daily Lick: Heavy Heavy Low Low

Turtle Nipple and the Toxic Shock (New Weathermen Records)



Heavy heavy is a fairly apt description of this San Jose band; "low low" doesn't factor into the equation, unless you're talking low tolerance for excess. The quintet's post-post-hardcore undergoes frequent shifts and twists à la prog-rock, but boils them down to the most salient, rough-edged details.
