Wow. This Italian garage album is a very striking, energetic debut from a young garage-folk-punk band from Rome, Italy. Reminiscent of the Violent Femmes, but with dual male/female vocals and with raw, lo-fi production, Bobsleigh Baby is a winner. The lyrics are sung in heavily accented English, with a haunting quality to them. The drums are uncommonly high in the mix, adding to the punch. They self-describe as post-punk, but I’m failing to see the post part. Unless the post part is post-dated. –Art Ettinger
