MONDO RAY: Hypnotized: 7” single

Nov 18, 2011

The Alex Fine cover art worked really well in getting me to pick up this record. Reminds me of Mike Allred (Madman, iZombie comics) in a lot of ways. Not only is the cover art really good, but so is the music: poppy garage punk that moves at a really nice pace. Both songs on here are pretty solid. Can’t decide which I like more, as they both have a way of staying with you long after the record is over. “Nothing” is the more poppy of the two and moves at a somewhat more mid-paced tempo. The repetitive riff is simple and catchier than hell. “Hypnotized” is a little heavier and more driven. I like the organ that is slightly buried in the chorus. The delivery is great and the line, “When I saw you I was hypnotized” sums it up.
