The Touchers call Montana home and have already released five other albums prior to “Blithe”. Somehow I’d never heard of them before but count on the fine folks over at Mental Records to get this album out there so people can experience one huge nineties flashback.
Because that’s exactly what this is with the kind of jangly, out of control indie rock that brings back memories to The Pixies. Ah, sweet memories! Vocalist Bipolar Ben did a great job of chasing the meters into the red one last time before calling it a life (he passed away in 2007) and leaves an impressive legacy with this last album that will be played quite a few times at PRT headquarters thanks to songs like “History Of Strange Fruit” and “Vampire”.
Score: 7.5 out of 10
