This disc sounds like a garage-rock version of Tom Petty with some of the wildness of The Black Lips—and that, my friends is a good f—king combination. I can almost feel the looseness and good-time vibe this band plays with through my speakers. The band’s previous efforts had more of a lo-fi feel, but thankfully, they’ve cleaned up just enough to understand and appreciate the greatness that lies within every song.—C.C.
