Hella -- Hold Your Horse Is

For whatever reason, these guys have a lot of hipsterdouchebag fans, but don't let that deter you -- this is some truly innovative, unique music. Spastic drummer Zach Hill provides the melody here, or at least what passes for melody in this kind of music, while guitarist Spencer Seim just tries to keep up. They never were able to recapture the vibrant freshness of this album on subsequent releases, but at least we can still listen to this, their debut from 2002.

VBR @ 256+ kbps
