Prisonship Seven-Inch Series vol 9

Blackleg b/w The Bombardier

Largely unknown, Abilene’s self-titled (on Slowdime, distributed by Dischord) epitomizes the marriage of downbeat aesthetics and intelligent stop-start antics that to me represent one of the high points in American heavy music. This belongs with yr June of 44, Fugazi and Slint records fo sho. These songs take their time unfolding, and make their way to really natural conclusions. And the bass playing – Jesus!
