Brooklyn's 7 INCHES (Every Day) gives a nice, in-depth review of Black Ladies' Naked Caveman EP. Check out the review at http://7inches.blogspot.com/2008/11/black-ladies-on-stationary-heart.html.
"...they are already anthems, at the Fucking Champs agility level, head shaking, you have to move... and hear where this beat and pounding bass is going.
Two grunts kick it the A-side and the drums are working overtime, really straining to get every crash to fill in any holes super frantic...this is the definition of the sweat filled basement show you're just blown away at. I like the bass is really forward but all grinding away, not delicate, probably no picks, you would just end up with bloody stumps on those huge strings. Or miles of tape wrapped around every night. To say nothing of the drummer who must be reaching across every piece of the kit for the another tom fill...it's punishing period."
These EPs are going fast! you can pick up a copy direct in our Releases section or through such fine distributors as Southern Records and Stickfigure Distro.
