Prints of China “False Fronts”

It’s an EP. “Empty Vessels” has “EP” and “MT” in the first word, which is some sort of pun, I guess, although a pure coincidence. It was recorded at Fastback Studios in Seattle. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find that association. I do like Fastbacks better, but whatever. At least Prints of China are better than Visqueen.
The title track is good stuff. It makes me think of old 10,000 Maniacs. The guitar has a nice power pop feel. “Power Heavy” has an ’80s near-gothic sound, although it’s not depressing, just, um, power heavy.
“No Shame” blew right by, and “Fluff and Fold” is not a Square One TV reference. It’s another one for power pop fans.
