MEERCAZ AND THE VISIONS: Get Muzzled: LP

While listening to this record, my brain and I got into a fight. Part of me thought, “Oh this sounds just like this one band…” and then I had to struggle to sort out what that was. Then it hit me that it was difficult to pin down because they’re derivative of so many bands. There’s a core Rolling Stones sound, especially with the vocalist who reminds me of a young Mick Jagger. But then the Stones are, in essence, a stripped-down blues-inspired rock and roll band. Meercaz And The Visions are the 2016 equivalent of that sound. The lyrics are simple in a way that makes it easy to sing along with by the second spin. There are some real sweet Wipers-y guitar leads mixed in with fuzzed-out riffs and a driving rhythm section that round out a rockin’ record.
