NEW ROCKET UNION: Self-titled: LP

This band sounds like Kiss: big riffs, mid-tempo drumming, middle of the road, basic rock. They’re a two piece, one of those “unique stripped-down garage rock bands” that are not so unique anymore. Sample lyrics: “She’ll never be mine but I can pretend/ I fall apart when I see her face/ High heels, black stockings, leather and lace.” Barf. Yo, dudes in bands writing songs about women, do better. –Kayla Greet (Ruzicka)
