A bunch of know-it-all dudes who work at a record store decide to make a melancholy garage album. This release is probably as good as you could ask for, with several standout tunes and pleasant hooks/melodies throughout. Although its really an obvious rehash of 60's garage (think The Seeds), this is actually a fantastic record if you are into that sort of thing.
An album with many pros, but some cons. Hooks are okay, but for some reason this album knows how to get you to play it on infinite loops. Favorite Song: Sandy
No need for hooks, just keep it going. This is the rock soundtrack of a day by the beach, replayed on an infinite loop... old radio, sand, wind and lonely hot bartenders.
