I was perusing my local 99 Cents Only store and picked up a couple of promising-looking albums. Okay, so I was judging entirely on cover art, but sometimes you can find some real gems that way. Radio and recommendations from friends only get you so far. I figure at worst they’ll be painfully mediocre. The first is “Dear Valued Customer” by Snog, which is more or less an anti-consumerist rant set to semi-interesting techno-industrial music. I was surprised to discover that one of their albums is called “Third Mall from the Sun,” which I knew as a song by Block. No idea if they have anything to do with each other. The second album is “Surrender, You Freak!” by Sister Psychic. It’s somewhat generic rock; with a few more listens I think it could really grow on me.
