Jagjaguwar and Brah Records are releasing City Of Straw, the seventh album by Brooklyn trio, Sightings. The first single from the album, “Tar And Pine,” is an avalanche of No Wave pulsation that marries Alan Vega creepy/cool with a hybridized byproduct that’s somewhere between Swans and Einstürzende Neubauten. Interestingly, Sightings is not a machined creation, just a trio of musicians set on bruising ears and scraping minds like headphone sandpaper.
