V.A. - Shiftless Decay: New Sounds of Detroit (2009)
Recently released on X! Records, Shiftless Decay features an ensemble of relentless Detroit Sludge at its finest. Some bands are worse then others, but overall this is one of the better comps I've heard in a while! Heavy psych influenced rock-n-roll/no-wave, in the same vein as The MC5, Blue Cheer, Stooges or Pussy Galore. Toss in some Athletic Automaton and some more modern type noisey clang clang and you've got it! Fucking rad! I really dug Heroes & Villains, Human Eye and The Mahonies a lot.
Put it on, turn it up, and fucking toss!
