ZOLTARS, THE: Live Like Dragons: 7”

Sep 19, 2013

They start out playing very gritty, low-fi garage on “All My Friends” then they mix in The Beach Boys harmonies on “Heroin Thunder.” To wrap it up, they throw in some psychedelic on “In the Basement.” What an interesting mix—a little bit of the different genres of the ‘60s—all in a very cool single. It took me a couple of spins, but this really grew on me and I really like it.
