Blank Dogs - Collected By Itself

If I hadn’t proclaimed Mike Sniper a masked person of interest in 2008, the longtime Brooklyn Blank Dogs multi-instrumentalist and Captured Tracks honcho couldn’t easily made yesterday’s 18 Bands To Watch In 2011. He released a new, higher fidelity LP Land And Fixed in October. Collected By Itself: 2006 – 2009, in turn, is very much what its title suggests, a collection of out-of-print singles, EPs, cassettes, etc., from the years specified. None of it’s appeared on CD before: This is the old scuzzy, especially pretty stuff. Don’t drown:
