Cosmic techno? The new demo track from local boy C.L.A.W.S.
-- titled, simply, "claws and joe demo 2" -- drops the vocals to a stutter, spins the the effects out into a 2001 space odyssey, and keeps the beats at a quick locomotive clip. Good stuff to keep your feet pounding and your mind flying. Check it out at C.L.A.W.S.' MySpace page
