HAMILTONES, THE: The Shape of Walter: 7”

Aug 01, 2019

This top-notch surf record is made all the more fun by the record cover, which is a parody of Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning The Shape of Water. The cover shows Walter, a humanoid amphibian much like the one in del Toro’s film, slobbing it up on a grimy chair with a TV tray full of fast food and bongs and such. Walter’s shape is not-so-great, but the tunes on this record certainly are. –Emma Alice Johnson (Self-released)
