FREEZING HANDS: Self-titled: Cassette

May 08, 2013

It’s funny how close punk rock gets to the original version of rock’n’roll. In the modern era, the distinction becomes almost non-existent. Bands that mimic the original sounds become punk by recording it to match the production of ‘50s and ‘60s acts. In Freezing Hands, I hear Beatles, DelShannon, and first wave psych rock bands. The result of this concoction may be familiar to you, as it lands pretty close to bands like Lenguas Largas and the Treasure Fleet. Features members of the Knockout Pills, or so I’m told.
