PYGMIES: Self-titled: CD

Ten tunes of rocking, slightly snotty garagey pop punk from this fantastic Calgary, Alberta band. Featuring members of the vastly underrated Neckers from that same city, the Pygmies have done a fabulous job with their debut release. Slightly less power pop-sounding than the Neckers, but leaning heavily into good pop punk with a garage feel, one of my favorite sounds to be sure. Some may want to note that Brendan from the Pygmies was a member of Chixdiggit! and played on their most recent EP on Fat. This could not come any more recommended for fans of everything from Real Kids to Groovie Ghoulies. Cannot wait to hear more from this phenomenal Canadian band!
