Rough 2

I appreciate what Tessela is doing for several reasons. Firstly, he’s seems to have chosen his sound palette (a homely kind of corroded, blown-out amp one) and is very content to just try and explore that. Secondly, he’s doing things with it that other people aren’t (read: leading from the front) and thirdly it all sounds so corrupt and gnarly that even the simple riff on ‘C’mon Let's Slow Dance’ sounds like a masterstroke of engineering.
