It ain't Rolling Stone or Spin. Hell, it's not Bona Fide Darling or Subservient Experiment either. But, either way, sure, I'll mention it: The blog It's Hard To Find A Friend has named Centro-matic and South San Gabriel's split double-album Dual Hawks as its third favorite record of the year. Granted, its named No. 3 in a three-way tie with two other records, so who knows how many bands are gonna be listed in the Nos. 1 and 2 holes. Two? Fourteen? 1,700?
Tough to say. But, either way: Welcome to the party, fellas! --Pete Freedman
