So Gooch Palms is a two-piece who expatriated from Australia to L.A. to spread their self-described “shit-pop” to all of us Yanks. One plays guitar while the other stands up playing a drum. It’s rock and roll, and they seem to care, but their production is too trendy in the way that their label, Burger Records is—measured-and-clean-sounding, feedback-laden, psych garage. I’d really like to get down to a band cool enough to describe their music as “shit-pop.” They’re allies, I think, but bad influence corrupts good rock and Novo’s just doesn’t rise above the never-ending hipster influence it seems to be mired in. Avoid rock-stopping associations.
