Capgun Coup’s sophmore release is ”A near perfect slice of lo-fi garage rock that owes an equal debt to both late 60’s era Bob Dylan and The Modern Lovers” according to Brooklyn Rocks blog. And it is! A beautifully whiny voiced southern twinged lo-fi garage rock extravaganza that I kind of want to call freak garage (to make up a genre). Recorded live in one room at the Frank Hotel in Omaha, this raw, energetic dream is pure fun. Just look at those guys up there, would you expect anything less from a cover like that?! Every song leaps in and out of the aformentioned freak garage, to surf rock, to folk, all the while heavy on the keyboard and echoes for a rough, perfect, DIY sound reminiscent of the 60’s and the now at the same time. Don’t miss this one folks!
