Long Way Down is the debut recording by Austin band Missing Pages. Think The Replacements’ interpretative energy meets Built To Spill’s guitar sound. Solid.

Something else from the press release:
Missing Pages is the new project from Stephen Svacina (Sweet Talk, Jonly Bonly, ex- Mind Spiders) featuring Ali Ditto (Talkies, Mean Jolene), Gabriel Pastura (Sean Morales, Church Shoes), and Garrick Thurston (Slow). Taking cues from genre benders before them and shaped by the musical overload of the Austin TX live scene, Missing Pages meld together a sound both brooding and hopeful, sincere while rejecting the sentimental; power-pop hooks ensnared in a wiry tangle of dark, splintering edges.

On their blistering 7" debut, Missing Pages channel the anxiety, exasperation, and jubilation born of those delicate moments in life when the casual comforts and routine are stripped away, forcing us to confront the ugly truth of who we really are.

RIYL: The Replacements, Built To Spill, Spider Bags, The Golden Boys, & Hüsker Dü.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 3

1. (3:24) ***Long Way Down – Fast tempo punker. Killer vocals and guitar work. It has a 1990’s college radio vibe. Think early Touch and Go Records.
2. (3:17) **Highlighter Piss – Medium-up tempo. Guitars a la Built to Spill. Energy a la Replacements. Solid.
3. (2:59) *Muck – Medium-up tempo. Strident and impressive. Marvelous guitars. College radio rock forever.
