MEET YOUR DEATH: Self-titled: LP

Stompy, loud, southern rock put through the filter of lo-fi garage rock. Really not my speed. Personally, I find the trappings of the southern sound to be incredibly off-putting. There are a thousand things I’d rather be doing than listening to a fourth generation Jerry Lee Lewis lite. I can’t say this is a bad record for what it is. The band knows how to restrain itself in the right way and the production matches their sensibilities pretty well. I just can’t get behind the goals they’re trying to achieve. Best of luck to them. –Bryan Static (12XU, 12xu.net)
