Antietam - Music from Elba - LP 1986

It took forever to find somthing by this band. I heard they were a 'noise rock' band like Live Skull or Sonic Youth (80's). I don't know if this record is their best representation of their sound but it didn't impress all that much. They sound like a loose Agitpop. Nothing jumps out on this record. Kinda plods along in a pre-alternative college rock band kinda way. Imagine a blend of folk music with Live Skull, or a messy Agitpop. I'm probably missing something, or I expected something more intense. It is really good to listen to - I've only heard it 3 or 4 times so far. I never really want to turn it off, or turn it up either. It will probably make more sense in a year or so, and which point I'll update this review.
