RANTOULS, THE: Chug a Lug: 7” EP

Dec 23, 2008

There’s a simple version of this review: if you like late ‘60s bubblegum pop—Archies, 1910 Fruitgum Co., and the like—you’re going to like this record. There’s also a director’s cut of this review: the Rantouls are a side project from Gavin May, singer/bassist from the Fevers. The man is a pop genius. He knows what he loves and his records never miss the mark. The Rantouls sound a lot like the Fevers and that’s as it should be. We don’t want to hear his ska/metal fusion project. We want him to continue reinterpreting the Buddah Records catalog.
