Album Review

Dirty Water Records goodness – Japanese fuzz garage revival. What you’d expect from this label: bad ass sneering fuzzed out garage. Remember: Guitar Wolf came from that island that we poisoned with nuclear bombs. Godzilla may have been fictional but searing Japanese psyche garage is definitely not. Jesus and Mary Chain come to mind sometimes but mostly The Mummies, Mono Men, all things Estrus Records. All songs catchy and fun. Play with all the other excellent garage hitting the afile right now.

1)* (4:21) slow evil surf hip grinder 2)* (3:57) tad more upbeat, cool beats, the JAMC tone comes through on this 3) (3:04) upbeat pop for sure, almost a brass tone to the addition of keyboards, like a 60’s TV theme song 4)* (3:19) upbeat, surfy 5) (2:58) shoo bop slow surf grind, kinda dark spooky feel with the fuzz, “its worry!” 6) (2:58) a bigger head nod beat, with tambourine, more swingy 7) (2:59) surfy cha cha cha 8)* (3:27) super cool vibrato and sexy drums, mid paced 9) (3:41) slower poppy, 12 string Rickenbacker guitar feel, cute background vocals, 60’s pop 10)* (3:19) title track: slower head swaying bass led, super hip and cool
