ENTHUSIASTS, THE: ”Sinkin/Risin” b/w “Joanne”: 7”

May 01, 2012

This trio from just north of New York City released this record on their own label. Magic Sleeve Records’ first release is the band’s second 7”. “Sinkin/Risin” is a slightly sloppy garage rock tune. For a trio, they have a very full sound, and the vocals sound like they might have been run through an old guitar amp. The drums have a loud crash to them, the bass definitely walks up and down the track, and the guitar leaves you with a very rich, heavy feeling. “Joanne” is a slower tune, allowing the band more room to fool around on their instruments. It sounds like it could have been recorded in the late 1960s. This record was done on a 5-track in a basement, giving you a pretty good idea of what they might sound like live. These records are hand-numbered, out of 150, so don’t sleep on this one.
