More proof that Centro-matic/South San Gabriel's Dual Hawks is, truly, among the year's best releases (as has already been implied elsewhere): The influential I Am Fuel, You Are Friends blog has included the disc in its write-up on the site's favorite albums of the year.
"This album was written and recorded fast and pure in a handful of days in the studio, and has a feeling of distilled essentials."
"Distilled essentials," eh? She's talking about whiskey, right? --Pete Freedman
