Boomkat Product Review:
Imagine getting on the sauce with $&$ in lockdown LA and you’ve got the whiff of their latest psychoactive jag for Rocket Recordings
Channelling everything from Can to Surf Rock, Morricone and Lee Scratch Perry in their hot and sticky style, it would appear on ‘Malibu Liquor Store’ that lockdown has lead the legendary Texan unit $&$ along psychedelically sozzled lines of enquiry to some of their ruddiest crud right here.
We’re talking the 10 minutes of bad belly D&B hoe-down in ‘Hillbilly Moonshine’, and the tart, swingeing torque of ‘Rat Snake’ puckered up with wicked surf rock licks, along with a bounding sort of psyche-skanker ‘Cream Tea’, punkish squall on ‘Devil’s Backbone’, and one of their sleaziest Lynchian moments in ‘Barbara and Woodrow’. Don’t ever change, $&$, ever.
