Boomkat Product Review:
Cosmonauts are one of Orange County’s premier garage rock bands, and from the sounds of this self titled jammer they don’t need any persuading to do anything different. The garage doors are already wrenching themselves off the hinges within about thirty seconds of the ear-crushing opener ‘Neon Kids’, and within about ten minutes you’ll probably know you’re in for an aural assault worthy of comparison to Thee Oh Sees or even garage rawk royalty Royal Trux. Thick, pummeling rhythms and acid-laced guitar tangles set songs like ‘Electric Chemicals’ into a narcotic cross-channel all of their own, and with a sleazy, VHS-like quality, the band stand to get more than just a tug job from the current crop of retrograde music fanatics. Burn one, and turn one up.
