MAMMALS: “The Hours” b/w “Tracks”: 7”

Jul 28, 2020

I guess surf is kind of back. I dig the super-simple black and white aesthetic of the band, which definitely harkens to some past era that the music is also vaguely gesturing to. “The Hours” has a much more Beach Boys vibe than “Tracks,” which brings in a little bit more ’70s vibe that reminds me of The Knack or Nick Lowe but also with a country twist like a more pop-y Elliott Brood. I would call these radio-friendly and I love that for them. –Theresa W. (Lamont)
