MONSTERS, THE: I’m a Stranger to Me: 7”

Two more tracks of blown-out trash punk to add to this band’s oeuvre. The title track is an almost bluesy bit of high-octane speed rock, while the flip, “Carpool Lane,” sounds like some sorta obscure garage rock classic as interpreted by Bubba Dupree from Void. Simple lyrics and structures delivered with the subtlety of a greased sledgehammer. –Jimmy Alvarado (Slovenly, slovenly.com)
