Autoclave – Go Far 7”
Dischord/K (Diskord), 1991
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2010
This 7” had everything going for it when I picked it up. All girl group from on Dischord AND K ft/ the totally awesome Mary Timony. It's a perfect storm of things that I love. On the music front, it's a surprisingly angular mix of mathy yet pop tinged post-punk. Me likey. The short lived group only put out one LP that features all three songs on this 7”. “Go Far” and “It's Not Real Life” are both good, but the real winner here is the B-side “I'll Take You Down.” There's something they're doing with the guitars on that one that wins my thumbs up. It sounds raw, bedroom style. The sort of song you would hear on the radio and say “this sounds like great early 90s alternative rock!”
Here's "I'll Take You Down."
