MALLWALKERS: Shake the Rust Off: LP

Stompy garage rock with a horn section, two singers and the tendency to feel like an R&B record at times. Perhaps it’s more economical to say that this is a funk punk/Big Boys kind of thing. The vocals are very harsh compared to the music, but there’s a lot of originality in the essence of these songs. Warrants multiple listens, even if it’s just to get past the amount of music that has to be processed. Grade: B+.
