SWELL MAPS - International Rescue (70s post-punk rock legends BLUE VINYL - LPALIVE
International Rescue is almost propagandist in its revisionism-- Swell Maps never sounded more like a real band. There should be a warning label affixed to this album to even the odds of people purchasing additional material: Absolutely the best record available by Swell Maps." - Pitchfork
