Ever since Dave Hernandez decided to pull the plug on Scared of Chaka and start breaking the hearts of lonely indie rock girls everywhere (he’s in another band that I’m not going to mention), there seems to have been a wave of heirs to their throne. The Chop-Sakis, the Put-Downs, the Marked Men, the Knockout Pills, and now you can add the Dissimilars to that list as well. Mid-tempo, scuzzy, catchy garage rock from San Diego. It’s as sloppy as it is endearing. Can’t wait ‘til this band releases some vinyl.
