BARE WIRES: Let Down: 7″

Damn, this is a great single! These guys are power pop, garage, proto punk, and minimal; all mixed seamlessly into one package. Both songs on here, the title track, and the flip, “Looking for Some Action,” are unbelievably catchy and instantly memorable. “Let Down” moves at a decent pace and the beat is steady and repetitive, in a good way. It gets a little noisy and boisterous towards the end, and suddenly it’s all over. Whoa! Flipping this baby over, “Looking for Some Action,” brings the mood down a bit, but the energy is still there. It captures the mood of looking for some action; kind of hopeful, but knowing more than likely nothing is happening, for sure. They have a LP out now as well, and I gotta get it!
