Centro-matic and South San Gabriel's Dual Hawks Gets The Pitchfork Treatment

...and, in turn, the album draws a 6.9 rating. Which is...OK by Pitchfork standards, and far more than a sentence like "Dual Hawks is, for lack of a better word, a double album" (as seen in the review) would itself merit, considering that, even in the writer's usage, "double album" is not so much a word as a two-part term.

But, I digress. It's actually a pretty fair review and, aside from that small, petty, already-mentioned gripe, it's pretty well-put critique. Better than most, I'd say, eh, Idolator?

Update: Once-upon-a-time Dallasites The Secret Machines also get a nod from the 'fork today, but only in one of those "Hey, we just got a press release about an upcoming tour" items. (But, for the record, some of you might be pleased to know there's a Dallas date on there: Friday, August 1, at House of Blues). --Pete Freedman
