Dump -Superpowerless

"The year was 1994. Americans thrilled to the latest episodes of "Friends" and "Frasier," assholes smoked cigars in public with impunity, the New York Knicks lost to the Houston Rockets in the NBA finals, and Lo-Fi music was sweeping the nation!
Largely due to the astronomical success of Dump's debut album, Superpowerless, the music world shifted dramatically away from the grandeur of Grunge and the pomp and circumstance of Alternative Rock. Following Dump's lead, bands had turned away from the bloated, inaccessible recording studio system and embraced 4-track cassette recording as the industry standard. In his memorable article for Rockpool, Steven Hawking described this new musical phenomenon as "Lo-Fi."
