Cold Showers + Veronica Falls + Cheatahs
Los Angeles post-punk band Cold Showers’ self-titled 2012 LP for Dais Records was an angst fit of dark noise, delivering on the promise they showed earlier with releases on Mexican Summer and Art Fag Recordings. Moody and atmospheric as a whole, the standout is “BC,” a churning track reminiscent of the sound of late-’70s Manchester. If only Martin Hannett were alive today to have had his way with it. Regardless, it’s still worthy.
