COMBOMATIX: Self-titled: LP

Jul 24, 2013

The Combomatix record has a hint of Reatards in the production that serves the band’s frantic style of punk’n’roll. “I Have a Gun” is a full-on blaster that feels as if it could become unhinged. “Big Nose” is a jumpy standout as a three chord, back and forth rocker. Trashy guitars and overdriven vocals are prevalent. It’s an album by a band that plays at one speed but understands the pace.
