Chicago’s most lovable garage pop 4-piece Spike and the Sweet Spots have joined Uh Bones, The Memories and The Yolks to one of the windy city’s most beloved garage labels Randy Records.  It’s a damn match made in heaven, yall.  If you like that rock and roll black-eye’d and lofi’d, bend an ear this way.  The Sweet Spots are here to close your summer out with 9 tracks of sugary sweet-nuthins.

Spencer Johnson’s earnest vocal delivery resides somewhere between the cake & confetti croon of King Tuff, the bleeding vulnerability of Christopher Owens and the abandon of Daniel Johnston, an impossibly sincere dagger straight to your heart strings.  Strange Breed is a collection of pop songs stripped to their bones and armed with the bare essentials, a monument to the power of good songwriting.  Leave the studio fluff and big budgets for the other guys.

Randy Records has 100 copies of the record on white wax and once those run out, 200 black copies remain.  Get in quick for a chance to seal a white copy, and listen to three of the album’s tracks below.
