New Album Review

New Daytime Music

Wooden Shjips – Back to Land

Minimalist psych rock like before, only this release isn’t nearly as good as their earlier stuff. 

Audacity – Butter Knife

Garage rock with a stiff pop-punk bend. Good hooks, great energy. Very solid album, if not all that distinct.

The Dirtbombs – Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey!

Silly name for a silly album. Garage band plays bubblegum pop. It’s certainly unique, I’ll give it that. 

Dresses – Sun Shy

Impeccably produced, upbeat pop a la Jason Mraz. If you’re the type to exhort things as “adorable,” you’re probably going to love this.

Ezra Furman – Day of the Dog

This guy uses classic rock & roll tropes spiced up with Lennon-esque screamy stuff and a super badass sax squealing solos Ornette Coleman style. Cool stuff.
