The sisters of 2:54 named their group after an exact moment in the Melvins song "A History of Bad Men." It's kind of a weird homage, especially for siblings playing gothic shoegaze rock, but it makes you more aware of those crucial subtleties that can make a track come alive. Like the juxtaposition of wobbly guitar and foreboding drones on "A Salute," the reverberating riffs washing over militaristic beats on "Circuitry," or the Siouxsie-like drawl and harmony on "Sugar." Produced by PJ Harvey alum Rob Ellis, their debut is a refreshing revival of the gloomier side of the '80s and '90s.
