LOVE CANS - s/t 7" review

LOVE CANS - s/t 7" review


This 7" contains two tracks of what I can best describe as psychedelic surf-rock that is a bit 70s and reminds me a bit of bands like FRET and YOUVES and maybe THE MURDER OF ROSA LUXEMBURG in places. Both songs have a really funky, catchy lead riff, on bass in 'Scary Eyes', and on guitar in 'Graveyard', helped along by some tight and pounding drums that marry rhythmically with said riffs. There are also some cool, heavily reverbed yet reserved (and suitably spooky with regards 'Graveyard') vocals on both tracks that compliment the music by way of adding extra texture to the rather awesome musicianship rather than being a focal point, which I really liked about it. A great little two-track record if you like garage-y surf rock with a psych vibe.
