Mysterious. I can’t quite get a reading on the Homostupids beyond: 1) I like them. 2) They (sorta) remind me of The Feelers’ take on music, disregarding any imagined division line between hardcore and garage rock. But then add cryptic lyrics, cat noise intros, horn instrument out-tros. 3) The mastering job sounds a lot like Supercharger’s Go Way Out! (meaning that it sounds like it was recorded in someone’s kitchen and adjacent hall), yet it—again, mysteriously—works and works well.
