Recorded with Mike Yach at Boulder's beautiful Immersive Studios, the diminutive collection - less than thirty minutes long - is jam-packed with crunchy guitars, catchy-as-a-coldsore melodies and some impressive instrumentalism. The lead guitar lines and solos -- which I assume are mostly Despres -- are the icing on this tasty cake. The overall sound reminds me of the early '90s heyday of radio-friendly alternative rock, recalling folks like the Pixies and even Faith No More. In fact, there's probably a special kinship between the latter and Dualistics since both love to artfully muddle up simple pop songs with impressive technical feats and gigantic layers of sound.
