MASTERS OF THE OBVIOUS: Spirla Slouch: 7″

This must be the product of genetic engineering. How else could these guys splice equal parts Are We Not Men?-era Devo and the first Boys record? Bear with me on this: it’s weird and mentally skewed, but not so much that the result sounds purposefully disjointed, and it’s bouncy and poppy, but smart enough to keep the bubblegum instincts in check. Or maybe they’re just some dudes who like the Spits but know how to play their instruments, it’s hard to tell.
