King Tuff/ King Tuff/ SubPop
Great production quality from the indie-garage pop album released by SubPop. The better songs are the ones that rock out. I wasn’t particularly a fan of the slower tunes. He should remember to emphasize the “Tuff” in King Tuff because it’s definitely his forte. Great vocals that give a rockabilly feel at times and also can sound a little bit Brit Pop or Shoegaze. My favorite songs were 2, 5, and 7.
