Can't really get "Space Academy" out of my head the last few days. I have a tendency to do this—to latch onto a song and listen to it way too much. This one is such a problem, though, that I never even make it to the second song on III, the Portland, Oregon outfit's third long-player. Monster fuzz guitar stretched out with what Sean Nelson rightly called Lou Reed's "drone imperative." Dig it, and if you dig the song, don't make the same mistake I'm making; go check out the whole thing. Any band that can cut this song has got to have more goodness where it came from. Let me know how it goes—I'll probably still have "Academy" on repeat.
