*Local Record Review: 'We Are Locally Grown' by Locally Grown Collective

bust out some serenely threatening lines fromKill the Irishman
is a nice touch, hearing a bit fromMad Men
's "The Suitcase" a fun surprise.) The whole recording exudes a feeling of both media overload and increasing, unbearable tension leaking into the songs.
