Garage rock. Â The subgenres and subcultures of this rock and rollÂ beast are vast in numbers, and it means something different to practically everyone who loves the stuff. Â Atlantic Thrills decided that instead of trying to tackle one particular niche of the garage sound, they wanted to do it ALL. Â Surf numbers, proto-punk thrashers, acid freak-outs, doo wop slow jams, coke-fueled rambles andÂ sedatedÂ comedowns. Â Even if you’re just kinda into the garage scene, there is something on this record that you’re going to love.Â Trust me here. Â Why would I lie to you?
Acid Rain is one of the standout tracks for me, a sweaty stomper thatÂ promenadesÂ along like the bastard son of The Velvet Underground’s Run Run Run. Â Twelve tracks, zero filler. Â Play it all below and grab a vinyl copy for a cool $14. Â The SlyVinyl boys must have been in a deeper haze than we thought last year in 2014, ’cause we let this release slipÂ past our radar. Â No telling how many copies of this are left, so either get in line or get the hell out of the way.
And be on the lookout for a new Thrills record coming out in a few months!
One of the best true garage rock records to come down the pike in some time, and perfect listening to help make spring and summer seem that much closer - or at least keep you warm until then.
Includes unlimited streaming of Atlantic Thrills via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
