STRANGE LORDS: Self-titled: 12”

Jan 13, 2016

Strange Lords are a garage/surf/psych duo from Florida that contains an ex-member of Against Me! A long line of fucked up, bluesy punk/garage bands before them—like the Cramps or even Pussy Galore—have paved the way for bands like this, and Strange Lords throw a layer of reverbed guitar of the top. There are parts of this that I like quite a bit and I believe that anyone with an appreciation for the kind of stuff that the infamous garage punk label Estrus Records used to release regularly would feel the same. The single-sided LP with a screen printed B-side is a nice touch as well.
