STRANGE IMPERIAL: King Rose: CDEP-R

Nov 15, 2022

California power trio drops their first release in quite some time. “I Don’t Wanna Be Your Borg” is right in my wheelhouse, although the guitar riff sounds like “Kool Thing” by Sonic Youth. The packaging is bare bones and there are no lyrics listed online but maybe that’s how they want it. “How Quick Are You Now?” sounds like Frank Black channeling Neil Young. The sound is grimy and lowdown. Maybe not full-on punk but there’s a Flesh Eaters vibe that’s drawing me in for further examination. Intriguing. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, strangeimperial.bandcamp.com)
