A future where Portland Maine generates the new Surfer Rosa and these songs are the yellow brick road to Cool Tara’s Gigantic.'

** REVIEWS **

Michael Ceramist by Cool Tara, limited to just 40 copies on bright blue opaque cassette. The A-side features two studio tracks. 325 straddles the fine line between punk and powerpop, offsetting strong melody with squalling guitar noise and sweary lyrics. Jason Leg is noisepop that reminds me a little of Boyracer, as well as Jigsaw Records' noisier bands such as Suretoss.

Over on the B-side there are two live tracks, 8/10, hard-edged powerpop with a multifaceted song structure, and Airliner, a million-miles-an-hour, energetic, noisy punk-pop track giving way to an effective atmospheric noise section with intense guitar noise and whooshing electronic effects. A fine homemade noisepop release, bursting with energy and DIY spirit.

Track Name: 325
I fuck it up
I never saw
That it was coming to me
As a matter of fact
It's your common attack
You laugh in my ear
I feel you breath on my back
It's nothing to you

You take it back
It's just a confident idiot
In our path
But what he cannot see
Doesn't matter to me
'Cause we have
No fucking chemistry
It's nothing to me

(Chorus)
Oh no
You always lose control
You sometimes
Forget about me
This shit is getting old

You fucked it up
It's more nomenclature
Than stature
So you can fuck what's right
It's your common delight
My fear will light the night
There's nothing to it

(Chorus)
Track Name: Jason Leg
He's saying it
It's time to go back to
The places she might linger
But she left this world
'I'm not your girl
I know more than I should'

Well that's okay
Already know
Someone who wants to
See that show
It's just the thing that
No one knows

(Chorus)
But that girl
Is gonna save the world
Thoughts of grandeur
He's in danger
All I know
It's getting stranger

She's saying it
It's time to go and find
The places he might linger
But she fakes a feel
I'm still in debt
You know that shit ain't real

Well that's okay
Already know
Someone who wants to
See that show
It's just some shit that I don't know

But that girl
Is gonna save the world
