SAD NEUTRINO BITCHES: Weltraumendspurt: 7”

The lead-off song on this eccentric 7” immediately brings to mind Black Randy’s “I Slept in an Arcade,” but that comparison ends with the song. Quirky-sounding, spastic punk with high-pitched vocals are prevalent here as this record immediately moves much more in the direction of a German version of the Angry Samoans mixed with a whiff of ’90s garage rockers The 1-4-5’s. This is a strange mix, but it’s oddly hooky and well done. –Mark Twistworthy (Phantom, phantomrecords.bandcamp.com)
