GOLDEN TORSO: Self-titled: EP

Jul 24, 2013

Cranked-up rock’n’roll that is all things rock should be: loud, in your face, catchy, and some attitude. There’s a bit of hardcore punk in the sound, like on the song “Bear Claws” that has traces of early Black Flag in the main riff. All four songs on this record are pretty damn solid. I appreciate that they switch tempos here and there throughout, such as following “Bear Claws” with “To Hell in July.” That song is pretty catchy and tuneful. I’m certain that after listening this a few times you too will be going around singing, “These sheets are made of cancer.” Pretty good record that caught me by surprise.
