HÖLLEY 750: Death Machine: CDEP

Sep 23, 2009

The band’s name comes from a famed carburetor and they self-describe themselves as “trucker punk.” This six-song EP reminds me of a slower Limecell or Cocknoose, and it’s hard not to raise a hairy fist in the air as the songs plod on. Jamie Desoto’s growly vocals are notably expressive and there’s a dedicated “we mean it” vibe to it all that rises to the surface on every track. The song title “Guns and/or Knives” might be tongue-in-cheek, but the seedy lyrics are seriously awesome.
