BAND OF BEARDS: Fuerteventura: 12”EP

Sep 23, 2011

Listened to this record. Didn’t like it. Googled the band, hoping to form a constructive perspective on their music. Found the site for the “comedy rock” group Band Of Beards. Thought, “Wait, was that supposed to be funny?” Turned out it was a different band. This Band Of Beards plays gruff punk with vague lyrics, painfully off-key vocals, and a couple of ska parts. Yeah, you read that right: ska parts. Eight songs. Good guitar work, aside from the up-strumming. Lovely cover art by Nate Powell.
