BAZOOKA: “Jupiter” b/w “Back to You”: 7”

You can’t judge a book by its cover, but it’s pretty easy to with 7”s. I learned the hard way with this band. I didn’t like the cover and wrote it off. I was wrong. “Jupiter,” on the A-side sounds as if Marc Bolan grew up going to house shows in the Midwest and loved The Nerves. “Back to You,” on the B-side, is a more laid back track complete with lost love and, “Nah nah nah’s.” This song has my favorite combo of sparse electric guitar melody lines and ratty acoustic rhythms. I even like the cover now. –Matthew
