Album Notes
One of the members of Microtia has to be from southern California; or, more specifically, San Diego. They have that distinct late 90’s sound that is an equal mix of less spastic GSL acts and ore rock-friendly bands from Gravity Records. In other words, they sound like what happened when the hardcore kids started smoking pot and discovered Led Zeppelin. Cave-In, Coalesce, and the Mars Volta are great jumping off points, and Microtia do all of them justice: The riffs are heavy, the time changes are bizarre, and the bong is (I’m assuming) never too far away.
