I'm still not quite grasping how music so dirty sounding can come across so beautifully. Certainly the vocals play a key role in that transformation, lilting  over plodding dirges drowned in waves of low end distortion, and the drums have a swing that belies the confrontational effect the recording embodies. My first impression was that this was a brilliant modern shoegaze effort, I heard MY BLOODY VALENTINE and NIRVANA almost immediately, and I still feel like that's a pretty accurate assessment of HAZEL'S WART though I think they dig way deeper than a band merely rehashing a sound. "Ghost Lover/CoincĂ©" is the song of the week.
