What is that inky, weird shadow draped over America? Oh right, it's Shearing Pinx touring the entire country in one whirlwind month. The Vancouver, BC, trio tumbles forth kicking and shouting into some pretty heavy-duty stoner scuzz that finds strange shapes in what used to be melody. Sightings, meanwhile, keep their noise bent toward the listener, too: No matter how nuts it gets, or how loud the distorted shriek, there is a song in there, man, underneath that racket. Dig it. With Whore Paint, The Dreebs.
