Past post

MP3: D.O.A. - Lady Tell Me Why
MP3: Hope - Dream Away

Numero Group really keeps on pounding the past in "Local Customs: Lone Star Lowlands". Although some of the songs where their influences on their sleeves quite heavily (the included "Dream Away" by Hope lifts its vocal harmonies basically from the Neil Young classic "When You Dance You Can Really Love"), all of the songs are still really well done. [Note: the D.O.A. song that is included here is not the same band that wrote "Marijuana Motherfucker.] However, that's what has always been great about the various compilations Numero has issued—some bands only have one good song, but that doesn't mean that it should be overlooked.
