WILLOWZ, THE: Talk in Circles: CD

Jul 12, 2007

Sonic elements here include ‘60s psychedelia, ‘60s garage, and maybe a smidge of ‘70s L.A. punk on those rare occasions that they smack their Converse onto their distortion pedals. They take minor risks with stuff like kazoos, chimps, and phone dialtones smattered here and there throughout the songs, but generally it's solid and reliable garage stuff that couldn't have been more synonymous with Sympathy had the label written a contract with a mad scientist and leased a laboratory and built this band from the stem cells up.
