Science Kit's brand of pensive (i.e. "smart") yet deftly crafted indie-pop caused less than a raucous even on their home turf. That's fine with me though, as I'm usually a sucker for bands that opt for a modest aesthetic. Hushed vocals and mathy, but generally accessible arrangements thrived under the Science Kit microscope, with faint similarities to such period clang-gangs as Edsel and Rotator Cuff. In addition to some split singles and comp appearances, S/K released a full length. 7 Times Around, in 1998, which I may get to when I deem fit. For the time being, raise your beaker to this. Btw, sorry for all the irritating surface noise.
