Went to the Middle East up this weekend for a chance to check out Treasure
Maps and Cult 45. Treasure Maps were pretty interesting, sounded good,
....I liked the killer and powerfully heavy sound from the guys in Cult 45 but
the singer didn't match. I kept thinking she should have been in a blues band
or something. We owe the Treasure Maps some more listening time. We did hear 3 songs that had a west coast folk psych sound a la Buffalo Springfield say.
