FRANKIE AND THE WITCH FINGERS: Zam: CS

This tape is laden with catchy choruses and extended jams. The skeleton of songs like “Realization” and “Pleasure” begin with basic tropes of solid garage hoppers igniting the lights under the mid-’60s dance floor. But the band’s bridges and endings veer into some wild and unpredictable instrumental jamming with a bit of funk and some psych wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-wa riffing on the guitars. I liked it. A little poppier than Fuzz, but I think a good listen for fans thereof. –Billups Allen (Burger)
