FATTIES: The Best Of: CS

This isn’t just the best of this Orlando band, it’s all of it—a tape compiling their entire output to date. I am having a hard time describing what I am hearing, but I know I like it. Fear meets Joy Division? Or does that just describe TSOL? Maybe they sound like TSOL a bit? There is a heavy early ’80s Southern California punk vibe here. Regardless of everything I just said, it is very original sounding and I can’t stop listening. Now I am just trying to figure out of their name means they’re fat guys, they roll big joints, or both? You know, the important stuff. Get this. –Ty Stranglehold (Self-released, fatties.bandcamp.com)
