TANNING BATS: On the Assembly Line of Heads: LP

Berlin’s weirdo punks have unleashed their debut LP, and for those who’ve never heard them, their sounds fits neatly in between the likes of Uranium Club, Marked Men, and The Oh Sees. From start to finish, this here slab doesn’t let you sit still. I’m curious to see how they pull this off live. The sound is everything from unique to catchy to easy going, but it keeps the listener intrigued. Also, it’s crucially important not to overlook the eye-popping cover art here. It’d look great as a shirt. Overall, a great debut. –Steve Adamyk (Twintoe, twintoe.bandcamp.com)
