BAD SHADOWS: Voices in the Dark: LP

Little bit o’ surf, little bit of power pop, a hint of punk, and a whole lotta ’60s garage make for some tasty tuneage that sticks to the eardrums. Derivative? Duh, but the songs are well crafted and executed, and they have the sense to eschew the whole “shit-fi” aesthetic that has been beaten into the fucking ground. Thumbs up. –Jimmy Alvarado (Resurrection)
