REVIEW: Nones - Midwestern Family Values (Hozac)

Hozac's latest batch of wax is stupendous!  Amongst all of this stupendousness is a debut LP from Chicago's Nones.  I don't have much context for categorizing a record like this, but it combines elements of noise and experimentalism paired with superb instrumental execution and rock poeticism.  True to the LP's title the lyrics traverse a trashy, American low-life universe with blunt, raw, often awkward realism.  Not a lot of records are made this way harkens back to the golden era of Captain Beefheart with its rock-meets-outsider-art aesthetic.  I dunno...just listen to it.  Get it here.
