hoodratscumbags (Beach Goons)

Reviewed by: DJ Dissociation, 9.26.18

The newest album from San Diego garage-punk group Beach Goons, hoodratscumbags is reminiscent of the distorted, in-your-face vocals of The Strokes, as well as the melancholy guitar lines of the Arctic Monkeys. High energy and grungy, most tracks on this album don’t stretch past 3 minutes; each one is a punch of emotion delivered by Mexican-American lead vocalist Pablo Cervantes. RIYL: The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys.

Rec: 1,5,6,8. FCCs: none



1.* (4:03) Starts as an energetic indie rock bop, shifts downtempo exactly halfway through the track. Fuzzy vocals. 2. (2:01) Mid-tempo, mild guitar solo closes out the track. 3. (2:33) More vocally focused with some groovy synths partway through. 4. (2:40) Panned vocals add a bit of interest, lyrics in Spanish with greater clarity than other tracks. 5.* (3:31) An uptempo jam with electric strumming driving the energy; wouldn’t feel out of place on a Strokes album. Presumably Hsrb stands for hoodratscumbags. Instrumental outro. 6.* (3:26) Lovely guitar-driven instrumental, with muted conversation in the sub-bass. 7. (1:44) Grungy lament about how all the vocalist’s friends are dead. 8.* (1:57) Uptempo, pushy rock jam ending in a lofi segment with abrupt cutoff. 9. (2:15) Slow, plodding instrumental with muted guitar driving. 10. (2:15) Surprising shift at 1:30 from hyper rock to trudging grunge.
