Jacuzzi Boys – “Sun”

Jacuzzi Boys have struck out on their own with a new EP and its thick with garage fumes. The same sense of off-kilter fun that’s always pervaded a back catalog full of quirks and hooks remains, especially on the bounce of the title track “Happy Damage”. Elsewhere the band rolls the guitars in gravel and toughens their knuckles against a storm of amplifier heat. Its a quick six shot but the Boys have never been known to linger long and there’s more than enough here to sink into. Its playlist fodder for sure but well worth the full spin over and over. Brief or no, I’m just happy to have ’em back.

Death By Unga Bunga “Tell Me Why”

Clean running garage from Norwegians Death by Unga Bunga. The band runs through the full gamut of 60’s flecked, power knocked, charged up garage pop and they do it quite well, lodging more than their fair share of hooks in your head in the process. Its been a while since they’ve had an album proper so this two tracker (six if you grab it digitally) will have to tide the world over until a new one is on the way. The bonus cuts on the longer version all simmer with similarly jangled and bouncy beats. There’s a distinct lack of grit here but not all garage needs to be gnarled and wrapped in shredded denim. Every once in a while the sun beams cracking through the Northern European clouds should be enough to make you smile. Plenty to love here.
