It never ceases to amaze me how many new bands (re: ones that I actually enjoy) emerge from the East Coast on an almost daily basis. Atlantic Thrills are no exception to the rule. Solid, catchy ‘60s garage/psych. Not unlike The Black Lips, as much as it pains me to go there. Yet, they have their own thing going for them; far from a carbon copy. Well recorded and distanced from anything too psyched-out. The songs are straight forward, but far from boring. Definitely closer to ATL’s masters themselves, rather than Demon’s Claws or Dead Ghosts, for example. “Day at the Beach,” is a hell of a track. If you’re a fan of the genre, you’ve probably already acquired this sucker. If not, what’re you waiting for?
