Brad Beatson only dates girls in 5411 Reeboks Classixx’ debut, Hanging Gardens, is about to enter its peak replay season. Thanks to Innovative Leisure, we’re treated with a remix EP dedicated to one of its finest cuts, “A Stranger Love.”
Classixx still better than every blog-house band that anyone ever overrated. Last year’s Hanging Gardens is the rare record that will probably get burn until the day I fizzle out (which could be soon at the rate the Internet is Internetting).
