Doom Town #4 is here by the way of the cassette tape entitled "Hot Lettuce" by Baby Tears. This creation features six songs marinated in secret ingredients and roasted in their own smoke and juices, making the origin of inspiration hard to pinpoint. It's sloppy but it smells good... it's gross but you can't put your fork down. And it's LOUD. This is the soundtrack to your nervous cousin's psychedelic meltdown at a gringo-style Mexican restaurant.
"A controversial gastronomic phenomenon, hot lettuce has been known to divide families. Proponents laud it as a delicacy while others find it unfit for consumption."
This description translates well to Baby Tears new offering. Some will find it a treat while others will find it unpalatable. You'll have to taste it for yourself to see which side you're on.
Recorded in the Spring of 2010 by Shawn Foree. Packaging includes a screen printed cover(green ink on black paper), black cassette tape, and screen printed label(green ink on white label). Limited to 50 copies. Available HERE.
Doom Town releases are now available digitally through Philadelphia buds, Hot Dog City Records. Check it out HERE.
