Neil Micheal Haggarty’s latest: Fans of Headcoats, Headcoatees, Raincoats, Mr Airplane Man, Detroit Cobras, Fire Engines, and of course Royal Trux are gonna mess themselves all over this one. Super sexy garage, swampy, fuzzy, disjunct rock w/ reverby female/male vocs, super creative/tripping/nodding production and cool song structures (not a single chorus to be found!!). Garage/swamp w/o being retro, modern but with a sense of basic roots rock. Strange and normal all at the same time. Wow!! Great shit, amazing guitar style that shreds. What else would you expect from the founder of Royal Trux/Drag City and original member of Pussy Galore. Nice to see that he’s evolved to the next level, leaving behind all the “garage”poseurs like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to boringly self-congratulate themselves in their tame gentrified lower east side boutiques. Living proof that drugs like heroin can do great things.

1) searing “dirty water” swing tone, fem vocs take over
2) post punk dissonant guits under sexy fem garagy vocs
3) super cool guit hook, “hit” quality
4) big swingy drum beat, psychey guits, epic fem voc melodies, wicked!
5) pensive, subtle blues swing
6) mixed up feel, sounds early 70’s hippie pop but oh-so-twisted
7) motown feel to the drums and girl vocs, rather brief
8) upbeat and psyche/garage rockin feeling
