Our best pals at Magnetic South studio/label in Bloomington released two amazing records this month, debut LP of Thee Open Sex and Circuit Des Yeux 10-inch. Outside of an Apache Dropout 45, the studio has released a ton of cassettes from Southern Indiana bands and assorted mix tapes of lost/found singles -- yet these sides are their first majorly distributed statments. Thee Open Sex somehow mash Popul Vu trance and Iggy Pop fatalism. It's a bizarre, heavy rock record that we've been playing non-stop lately. Fab cover art comes via Mad Monk and Xerox the Kid. Check 'em out.
