It’s probably got a lot to do with the shows I’ve been going to, but it seems like Minneapolis has had an influx of bands that want to “Be-ah your rock’n’roll savio-ah!” This MPLS three piece is no exception. I am totally bored with fuzzed- out surf guitar garage rock. When did everybody decide they wanted to be Jon Spencer or some shit?. My dislike of this particular genre aside, What Tyrants are good at what they do, and this is a well- recorded 7”. If this sounds like your bag go on, check it out.
