referencing Short Eyes / Her Mother's Sorrow, 7", Single, SCALE 24

A gorgeous, fleeting glimpse into an alternative world as Tom Hazelmyer steps in for the departing Bill Hobson and Killdozer knock two songs out of the park that combine the relentless 'dozer assault with an extra dollop of melody. The hooks here are all-consuming; Hazelmyer's low-end shredding during 'Her Mothers's Sorrow' is a goddamn delight.

As everyone knows, Killdozer is the greatest band in history and they don't have a single sucky release, but this EP lets you see into a window of what-ifs - what if we'd got an entire LP with this formidable lineup? / What if Hazelmyer had stayed on after Hobson came back? / What if I didn't consent to those medical experiments during college that gave me pincers for hands?

All in all, the possibilities are endless, and between the music and Gerald's trademark killer uncle falsetto, this is a great way to pass six minutes.
