MISHAPS, THE: Rock and Roll: 7″/CD

Baltimore’s The Mishaps blend a risky mix of garage, classic rock, and dance music into a unique sound that is surprisingly unpretentious and fun. The keyboards are kept low enough in the mix to fit in, and the classic rock riffs are used sparingly. This 7” comes with a bonus CD that includes both of the songs from the 7” as well as two additional tracks. The bonus songs on the CD are as good as the two highlighted on the 7” and would make for a worthy 7” in their own right. There’s a huge MC5 influence throughout, making The Mishaps as playfully retro as they are original. Art Ettinger
