The new year gives us much to squeal about -- hell, even the first three months are looking pretty good -- but Mind Spiders' new LP, Meltdown, out February 21, has been on repeat for at least three weeks. It follows up 2011's debut self-titled debut on Dirtnap, and has the same balance of '50s/'60s rock and roll, Krautrock tangents and sci-fi love. Mark Ryan knows how to write a great song in two minutes or less.
Check out some video of them ringing in the New Year Saturday at Rubber Gloves. Sweet pit!
