Album Review
Basil
Reviewed 2009-07-12 

The band's self-described "flower punk" - psychedelic mixed w/ garage rock – sounds like the Sex Pistols mixed w/ the Beach Boys and topped off with a side of dirge & silliness. Band is from Atlanta, GA & is known for their wild shows (vomiting, urination). this is their 5th album.
FCC: 3, 11 Try: 6, 1,3,2,5

1) ** high energy, jangly, chaotic opener. Makes u want to rattle about
2) *vox like the Ramones w/ boppin surf guitar; “flower punk” at its peak
3) **FCC accessible track w/ catchy chorus + maracas in the rhythm section.
4) dissonant grief & dragging guitars
5) *Haunting & Howling mixed w/ a bit of psychedelic flavor
6) **Lead single: upbeat, communal, lo-fi southern rock a la Black Keys, The Who
7) slower song, mourning lyrics
8) pokes fun at Jack Johnson!
9) name of song (“again & again”) precludes the guitar riff; great energetic yet droning punk
10) Less scratchy & echoed than others; focuses on southern jangle & surf guitars
11) FCC “fuckin”; grungy slow RAP! Gets kooky & screamy
12) driving, chunky guitar chords a la The Vines, dissonant vox
13) Oh the dirge! Play it if you sense a craving for dumb despair
14) Little interlude about becoming religious; wild, drunken exclamations about seeing god
