WEREWOLF JONES: Self-titled: 7”

This awesome garage debut from Detroit’s Werewolf Jones contains four blazing tracks of gritty goodness. It has a real scummy, down-and-dirty vibe that makes me think of Spider Babies or a fuzzier version of The Dwarves. It’s one of those records that instantly demands attention, starting with its cover illustration of swimmers jumping into an empty pool. It takes the best of the 1990s refurbished garage tropes and smoothly combines them with a new millennium sensibility. I look forward to hearing more from this auspicious new assemblage of sickos. –Art Ettinger (It’s Trash!, itstrashrecords.bandcamp.com)
