Sloppy, noisy rock & roll -- this describes the Olympia indie veterans Old Time Relijun. But unfortunately, that proper description is nowhere close to a compliment. La Sirena de Pecera features an arrangement of out-of-tune instruments, poorly captured lo-fi recordings, and hauntingly bellowed vocals that have an overall whine and lack of appeal. Even if Old Time Relijun have the credibility of featuring Microphone mastermind Phil Elvrum behind the drum kit, that doesn't stop this Blues Explosion-inspired noise from being a difficult listen.
