Reviewed 2017-11-14 
Noise garage infused female energized fuzz dissonant rock. International nugget plucked for us by Slovenly Records from Athens Greece: “Greek freak-rock... Athens duo HAND & LEG is the unit that has popped our intercontinental cherry with their debut, self-titled album of throbbing arthouse post-punk, sonically akin to the more stripped-down elements of the French glue-wave scene. Iro (f: bass guitar) and Stelios (m: drums) bleed gross distortion over grinding sex beats with precision, alternating vox on tributes to unlikely American folk gods Dave van Ronk and Lester Bangs, while channeling the traditional, Minoan minimal music of Crete to complete their primitive manifesto: The Kritikal Beatdown. LP is limited to a one-and-done press of 500 copies.” Bravo, Slovenly! Play with Darts, early Sonic Youth, Red Aunts or other female noise rock/pop greats.

1)* (3:03) very quiet fade-in, super cool krautrock’y beat and tone, upbeat noise rock with female vocs 2) (2:05) midpaced head nodding rocker 3) (2:26) upbeat noise rock 4) (2:24) slow plod stoney, male vocs 5)* (3:50) noisier, fuzz bass and tribal tones, male vocs mostly, early Sonic Youth comes to mind 6) FCCs “dogshit” 7)* (3:04) tribal melodic feel 8)* (2:35) very post-punk feel, bass driving, halting, dissonant, da da lyrics, “lester bangs!” 9) (1:43) bass driven fuzz plod 10) (5:12) starts with white noise, looping feedback appears, then simple melodic vocals, then a low fi primal scream pounding fest materializes
