SYNOPSIS Easy listening for the self-absorbed and stay-at-home set, including goodo stuff both old and new from our pals Low (from their yummy/scary new album), the worshipful Crash, krautrock obscuratists La Düsseldorf (thanks, Mike Kelly!), the band the New Year (what a debut, still crushed out), and a group we’ve never heard of called (we think) Dolphin & the Hits, though their poorly labelled demo (?) given us by Barman Jack, at Life 983 in Bushwick, doesn’t really tell us anything useful. Ah, sweet mystery of life!
