UP THE ACADEMY: “Gimme Gimme” b/w “Pretty Bird”: 7”

Sep 11, 2012

Side A starts things off with some swampy garage rock with a somewhat creepy refrain of “just give me what I want.” Sometimes I can dig slide guitars when done tastefully, which they are in this case. Side B is instrumental indie rock that starts off promising enough. I mean, I was hearing some weird GSL type stuff, but it quickly devolves (or evolves depending upon on your perspective) into prog rock territory. Side A’s telling me I should give this band another chance. I am a big fan of the screen printed cover on a Pabst box as well.
