I had heard about Your Pest Band for some time now. There have been a few attempts on my part to check out the music, but I never found anything that stuck with me very well. An identity for the band’s sound never fully formed in my mind. And that’s around the time I usually give up trying to like a band. Going into this album, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. What I ended up getting was relatively pumped-up Japanese punk with a psychedelia twinge that’s a little out of tune in a good way. (A very good way.) This is a pretty good album. Goes great with blown-out speakers and warm summer days. Grade: A-.
