DOWNER PARTY, THE: Ego-Driven Lust Creatures: CDEP

Sort of dreamy at bits, but definitely more garage pop from this female-led Bay Area three-piece. Songs that have that shake-your-booty flair with a strong, rocking underbelly to carry it along. I really like the loud production on this recording; real bright but mixed evenly, while still having a hint of rawness.
