BRIMSTONE HOWL: Magic Hour: LP

The cover of this album has a cartoon of a duck-billed, eyeball monster wearing a space suit in the middle of a drought-ridden wasteland. It looks like a movie from the iconic 1960s-70s low-budget director, Roger Corman. The band has an equally retro-fabulous sound, while still sounding completely fresh. I love this music. I would cut off three fingers to be able to write surfy, reverb-heavy guitar riffs like there are here. Maybe four fingers. I can’t say enough about how fun this music is. A blurb on the sleeve of this LP might sum up the sentiment and feel of the songs best: “Get down with the right sound. Burn your false idols. Quick! It’s Magic Hour.”
