Bugs in the Dark can do what all those post-punk revivalists did five years ago by prettying up the raw material of their era of choice, which for these guys is early 90s alternative/noise.
Listen to “Gasoline” below, or go to their Myspace for a sweltering track called “Ave M” that builds into something Sonic Youth should have put out on Dirty to break out into that post-Nevermind alt-rock hype machine, if James Iha had been behind the recording console doling out harmonic minor scales and ignominious advice. Oh well. Too bad for SY, it's 2008 and Bugs in the Dark are doing it now.
Bugs in the Dark, “Gasoline”
Bugs in the Dark are playing lower Manhattan's Cake Shop tonight.
