JACKETS, THE: Queen of the Pill: CD

The Jackets are a Swiss garage rock band and I have to say I pretty much fell instantly in love with this album. I won’t claim to be an expert in the genre (there are already so many pretentious weirdos flexing that), but I can say that I’ve always been a fan. The Jackets sound legit, make my ear holes happy, and that’s good enough for me. I will say that I was mildly disappointed when that rocking song about Steve McQueen was actually called “Steam Queen.” This is their fourth album, so I am about to search out the other three. –Ty Stranglehold (Voodoo Rhythm)
