FLESH LIGHTS: You’re a Stealer: 7″

Good, solid rock’n’roll that is deceptive in its simplicity, and I concur with the included description of the Flesh Lights as “muscle pop.” I first thought the record was two simple rock’n’roll ditties, but further spins reveal levels of complexities and inventiveness not often heard among these sorts of bands. The tunes rock and the wailing vocals work wonderfully as the singer draws out notes that smooth over the staccato rhythm, like a fine layer of silt over jagged bedrock. Kind of like the Rip-Offs, only talented.
