RISE UP HOWLING WEREWOLF: MSSD: 7”

May 26, 2011

The name of the band doesn’t quite match up for me—I was expecting unspent gasoline and greasy fingers, hunkered over engines of songs revved high, pegged in the red. But I’m not disappointed that it’s almost the opposite: beguiling, catchy, almost new wavy (Adam Ant) because of the keyboards, the sunshine, the dream-like quality, what could either be a drum machine or a single snare drum. Initially thinkin’ I’d be getting something akin to the Quadrajets, but gettin’ something that’d buddy up nicely and get laid back with Underground Railroad To Candyland and Lenguas Largas. Nice.
