DEVIOUS ONES: From the Stylus to the Speaker: 7”

Detroit’s Devious Ones exploded onto the scene recently, with this two-song 7” as their second release. Playing power pop with a new wave slant, they are like a less-contrived version of The Briefs, not that there’s anything wrong with The Briefs. The production is flawless on these two tracks, well showcasing the punchy fun. It’s time for an LP! –Art Ettinger (Rust On The Blade, deviousones.bandcamp.com)
