BAD MOVES: Untenable: CD

Getting a bouncy, fun Toys That Kill vibe from these folks. Or the Breeders. Or a large number of bands on Dirtnap. Or the Pixies. Or even, I don’t know, Queen? No, really! And oftentimes, there can be a combination of these comparisons within the same song. And it’s all resolutely cohesive and doesn’t come off as contrived or an outright mirroring of those bands! Don’t know what kind of wild, wizard-like, alchemist shit is going on here, but it’s very cool. Sounds both timeless and of the moment, and there’s some serious swagger involved. –Keith Rosson (Don Giovanni)
