Baby Sage | Glorious

(Poe Records)

It is always fun to discover a record from the '90s that I somehow missed. Baby Sage's Glorious, originally released as a seven-inch in 1995, is an earnest, winsome, and subversive example of great alternative rock with 1980s-college-radio influences; comparisons to Belly, Pixies, and Throwing Muses would not be far afield. The lineup features Gardiner's Michael and Kristina Rose (Astro-Zombies, Melted Americans, Wild Irish Roses, Templars of Doom), and you can tell that, like some Soul Asylum records, their live energy was even better than the dynamic recordings. "The Man with Two Fingers" allows for some Sonic Youth-esque guitar soloing to cut loose; "Sunday" is a fairly perfect indie song with hooks and a desire to "eat the holy flesh"; and "I Am the Leper" is like if the Dead Milkmen and the Breeders tried to make an outro that felt like an Iron Butterfly jam but was still under four minutes.
