Free For All: Fay Wrays

Times are tough out there, and for many of us buying music has become quite an indulgence (albeit a necessary one). Happily, there are some lovely musician folk out there that have offered up some fruits of their labors to the masses, free of charge. Free For All celebrates these wonderful people, and you, dear reader types.

Perhaps the holidays have you feeling a little less than joyful. Instead of stuffing stockings, say, you feel more inclined to ram them down familial throats or pelt various family members with supersized lumps of coal. In this case, might I suggest checking out the delightful darkness of Fresno's Fay Wrays? Their (free free free) LP, Strange Confessor, is comprised of nine songs filled with grinding, volatile and visceral post-punk angst with an occasionally cheeky sense of humor (i.e. songs like "When We Storm The Gates We Sing This Song" and "San Francisco (in) General") and a whole lot of spite and malice. The more I listen to Fay Wrays, the more I think I like them. So give in to those mean holiday reds and and spend some quality time in the company of Fay Wrays.
