These folks have been around for a good bit longer than this blog and al­so have been a con­stant part of my life's back­ground hum all the way, al­though things have gone a bit qui­et around them in re­cent years. Their first new LP in five years once again presents the Seat­tle group in peak form though. Their se­cret weapons have al­ways been their sim­plic­i­ty, tons of quirky charm and a unique knack for churn­ing out catchy-as-fuck lit­tle slack­er hymns that just grow on you, pre­sent­ed in an un­pre­ten­tious, straight­for­ward garage punk and fuzz pop sound.
