VARNALINE, CENTROMATIC, THE LONG WINTERS

(Satyricon) The Long Winters are the new band on Seattle's Barsuk Records. Featuring ex-members of Western State Hurricanes and Harvey Danger, live, the band makes flawless pop music with full harmonies and a healthy dose of gloss. Summer-friendly and packed with highly literate lyrics, The Long Winters are masters of the uber-hook--a little more polished than I'm used to, but tops at what they do. JS
