Boomkat Product Review:
The project of Sam Coomes and Sleater Kinney drummer Janet Weiss, Quasi is a labour of love for both artists. As stated by Weiss many other bands formed around the time they formed Quasi in the early 90s have now split up, but she and her bandmate have a deep and spiritual link which allows them to continue writing and producing regardless of fad or fashion. This is certainly something that shows here, and Quasi’s retro rawk certainly makes for a nice distraction for Domino as they shift a million Arctic Monkeys cds a minute (this may not be true…). ‘When The Going Gets Dark’ is the bands first studio record as their last were recorded at home, and it was recorded by none other than Dave Fridmann, who worked on the last Sleater Kinney album.
