Times New Viking were once considered the lowest of the lo-fi—years before everyone and their moms were trying to out-scuzz one another. Even the flip from Siltbreeze to Matador a few years back didn't put the Columbus, Ohio, trio on the straight and narrow. On Dancer Equired!—their first release for yet another label, Merge Records—TNV cleans things up a tad, while adding a little more melody to the mix. To the lo-fi faithful (is there a lo-fi faithful, or am I just making it up?) this could be seen as sacrilege, but frankly, I've heard many a good song/album nearly ruined by shitty (over) blown-out, tinny production (I'm looking at you, Eat Skull), so you won't hear me complaining. You probably won't hear many others complain, either... except for maybe Pitchfork—but they complain about everything. MARK LORE
