BRAIN TRAPS: Hobo Cobra Action Tracks: LP

Jul 25, 2018

I’m pretty sure I’ve reviewed Brain Traps before, I don’t believe they’ve made it out to the U.S. and they’re not a well known band outside of Cologne, Germany, however I know I’ve heard them before. With all of the lo-fi garage that graces my turntable (the good, the bad, and the ugly) Brain Traps does have a signature sound. It’s super catchy, and easily danceable, like early Black Lips trash garage. Hobo Cobra Action Tracks is at worst an easy listen, and at best a true fist pumper... depending on your mood, of course. With six songs though, I wonder why a 12”. I know that 7”s don’t sell, but ya know, I’m all about efficiency… but I’ll let it slide. –Camylle Reynolds (Stencil Trash)
