El Buzzard

    Tranquilizante del Elefante


    You’re really only guaranteed to find one thing on Tranquilizante del Elefante, and that’s that California’s El Buzzard doesn’t give a fuck. The follow-up to the self-titled debut from the band, which features members of Mohinder and Duster, the EP beats the shit out of you with its lo-fi, grunge-influenced, Melvins-esque, surgery-without-anesthesia kind of scary, murky, distorted, pummeling beauty. It’s one of those records that digs into you with dirty, broken fingernails and won’t let go.
