FATTIES: Self-titled: 7”

Jan 05, 2022

Rumbly, bass-forward punk, delivered with a sneer and a sense of humor by this Florida trio. I picked this up off the strength of the cover, which lands somewhere between blotter acid graphics and black light posters: it’s a cartoon raccoon with a striped headband and smiley face fanny pack running across a bunch of dice and yin-yangs. It fits the vibe. I wish they included a lyric sheet because I bet the words to “Double Shift Shake” are a hoot, but this band still gets the issue’s “Seems Like a Good Hang” award. –Chris Terry (fatties.bandcamp.com)
