FLASH BOYS: Self-titled: CD

Relatively low-fi garage punk from Austin. Pretty standard stuff in most ways. The first half of the record was kinda crappy because it seemed like the band was out of time with each other a lot. The second half of the record was a substantial improvement, though, and I liked that part a whole bunch. So, there’s a familiar and comforting sound to the band, but it’s not anything terribly mesmerizing, and the quality is a bit inconsistent. Not bad, not great. If I sound somewhat wishy-washy, so be it.
