TV Buddhas - The Golden Period


"In the world of two-people bands nothing much counts but the energy and drive they put behind their music. This is what set e.g. Lightning Bolt, United Movement and (early) White Stripes apart from the mediocre rest of two-people bands (and especially that breed that plays instrumental noise rock and usually gets as boring as the third rerun of The Golden Girls, but I am disgressing.) If a two piece band has drive and energy, it can be great. And, in fact, this is what makes “the golden period” by the TV Buddhas such a great record. A driving, energetic piece of sometimes overconstructed noise rock with equal parts songwriting and chaos in the mix to make it outstanding. Yeah, that and the band hailing from Tel Aviv, Isreal." - cracked
