HANZ BRONZE “Self-titled” C25
(Range Life Records)

Dude’s falsetto is fucking awesome, somewhere between David Bowie and Black Francis! His normal singing voice is unaffected and sincere, but all I want is to hear them high notes! Also noteworthy are the occasional hair-metal guitar lines (a few notes are str8-outta November Rain) and a Silver Jew-ish vibe. These qualities, along with aforementioned shrill hollerings are what carry this tape out of the predictable ‘college rock’ genre and into something worth intentionally listening to.

Tracey Trance has been passing me tapes of his pal Hanz Bronze for a few years and I was glad to see one of his tapes arrive with the Cassette Gods mail drop -- ed.
