Kurt Von Stetten has a reputation as New England’s eclectic, prolific musical genius. And it’s well earned. This album’s terrific, all over the place, and quite unlike anything else I’ve heard so far this year. And most importantly, reminiscent of the 90’s Sebadoh/Pavement sound. However, “Pounding Strange” sounds like a stray Interpol song. The songs feel more nostalgic than derivative, since he’s got his own spin and stylistically, he’s about as unpredictable as a whirlwind.
