 aimee unleashes the whole of the sun when she opens her mouth to sing ... they really must be seen/heard/felt to be believed. and, personally, i like the bookends. but, thanks for reviewing.

 Yes, thanks for reviewing. I think the album sounds full even at 28 minutes. However, why is it that a female screaming gets thrown in the riot grrl bin automatically? If a guy was screaming would it be less "dated"?

 yo, i saw these two in connecticut last year -- they rocked my f-ing night. Very nice folks, definitely helps to see them live before hearing the record because I'll always remember how intense Aimee was that night, but yeah I'd agree the record holds it's own as an LP too. short & sweet.

 my pleasure to review. i did like the bookends very much myself (her voice is amazing) and that's why i thought there should have been more of that variety in the middle. about the screaming, i felt some of it was typical "riot grrl" in style so that's why i referenced that style. shannon wright, pj harvey, carla bozulich can scream and it does not sound riot grrl-ish to me; it sounds primal. aimee argote's screams (not her singing) seemed to belong to a different camp - the one of aggression that can sound forced. i'll stand by the riot grrl thing for now. thanks for responding.

 Jill, this duo is wailing with intensity and dynamics that have my knees bopping off the ground. Thanks for reviewing this one..I hope to catch them while i'm at school. I've only heard the mp3 of "Jesus Loves You..." but the hook has definitely sunken deep in to my bottom lip. This duo packs the goods reminiscent of DFA 1979...?
