ERODERS: Self-titled: LP

This record from Detroit defies easy categorization. Staying mid-tempo throughout, this is bar punk with major influences from other forms, including psychedelia, classic rock, and surf rock. The vocals are spot-on. Some of the tracks have extra instruments, including Farfisa organ, harp, and viola—three instruments not typically featured on records reviewed in Razorcake. Eroders are clearly trying to tread new ground, while simultaneously creating accessible tunes. They succeed in leaps and bounds, making this a memorable, worthwhile debut full-length. –Art Ettinger (Outer Limits Lounge)
