WIRMS, THE: Ain’t Gonna Find Me: LP

Man, there are glimmers of really great songs in this LP. I feel like The Wirms just need to keep chipping away at all the surrounding sediment and they’ll have a real gem of an album. Ain’t Gonna Find Me is very roughly recorded, so skip it if you’re into a more polished sound. But this garage punk duo know how to write furiously raw, interesting, and compact songs. I bet they’re really fucking great live—hopefully one day I’ll find out. –Simone Carter (What’s For Breakfast, [email protected], wfbrecords.com)
