We get a lot of crap CDs at the self-titled offices. But once in a while, a pleasant surprise slips into our promo stack. Here’s a recent delivery that knocked the S/T staff on its collective ass.
Album: The Strange Boys…..And Girls Club (In the Red)
Vibe: Loose, strutting nuggets of southern-fried ’60s twangle (OMG, twang + jangle).
RIYL: Dragging your friends to Black Lips shows (back in their golden-shower days); “96 Tears”; brown-bag booze runs and porch-squatting in the summer[audio:http://www.self-titledmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/07-heard-you-want-to-beat-me-up.mp3]
