AMERICAN SUN: Self-titled: 7”

American Sun is an all-female, dark garage punk three-piece with silly lyrics and an eye to the past. But there’s a problem with fetishizing the past. It leads to the resurgence of things like echo-drenched vocals and people thinking moustaches are pretty sweet. The goal should be to take what’s good from the past, develop it, and leave the headbands in the mud of rural New York. I like ‘60s garage rock as much as the next person, but it’s time to move on. Get over it. We went to the moon: there was nothing there. With that said, if I was wasted somewhere I didn’t want to be and this band came on, I’d think it was pretty cool. – Matthew
