    Greetings From A Postcard
Criminal Hygiene are a Los Angeles-based quartet comprised of founding member Michael Fiore, Michael Hiller, Sean Erickson and Cameron Ward.
Fiore handles the lion’s share of the songwriting though Hiller is responsible for several gems too. Over the period of a couple years, they wrote-recorded-practiced and performed their asses off, releasing 5.5 singles, an EP and an album. They’ve played literally hundreds of local shows as well as 60-some national dates with the likes of Twin Peaks, Together Pangea and The Whigs, among others. Their album, Run It Again, is set for release March 1st, 2019 on Dangerbird Records.
Run It Again is 10-song album that shines a fresh light on a raw sort of garage rock, full of melody, smart lyrics and hooks for days. Recorded at Future Shock studio in LA, produced by Alex Newport (Death Cab For Cutie, Frank Turner), there’s an artful flow to the collection of songs.
With the current state of the music business, it’s impossible to say how an album like Run It Again will be received. Fortunately, because of the autonomy of the internet, business machinations and hurdles no longer rule the masses. The quality of Criminal Hygiene’s writing and performances is sure to be recognized by the portion of the global music community who listen carefully, however large or small that may be. After all, it’s an empirical fact that the cream always rises to the top, isn’t it? And that’s something we can all be thankful for.
