DUST BUGS: Don’t Belong: 7”

This record sounds like it was recorded to imitate how they would sound live if you were pressed up against the speaker with earplugs in, as I often am when photographing bands. Dust Bugs (Aalborg, Denmark) sound distorted and lo fi with a ’70s vibe, which fits their self-described style of “budget rock.” It’s loud and blown out—probably made with busted-up instruments in a garage—but carries it all with an undeniable swagger. –Lorien Lamarr (5 Feet Under, 5feetunderrecords.bandcamp.com)
