Despite their diminutive name, Pygmy Shrews pack a pretty heavy wallop of brutality. Blown out scuzz rumblin straight outta your speakers for the full duration of their Big Time cassette on fledgling label Work To Death. Splitting vocal duties between bassist Tia Vincent and guitarist Ben Greenburt, the band fares a bit better when Tia's screaming on the mic. Her tortured nuance gives a slap of vitality to their dump truck arsenal of feedback blasts that tends to get lost when Greenburg steps up. Meaty guitar slabs aplenty with the meters sitting way in the red, leaving a trail of gravel and grit in your ears even after one listen. Still not a bad little shot of Brooklyn aggro assault here.
