COSMIC PSYCHOS: Loudmouth Soup: CS

Competent and varied rock from Australia. A lot of this seems to be “motorcharged garage rock” but there are some offbeat songs and awkward passages, like the out-of-tune bass solo in “Rat on the Mat,” that make this an enjoyable listen all the way through. Despite the ages of the members (based on the photos, I’m guessing they’re in their forties) this would be at home on the stereo of any frizzy haired garage-bro that typically listens to FIDLAR. That is not an insult. –Ian Wise (Burger, burgerrecords.com)
