Albums jump out at you for different reasons; some because they appear to hit so many of your sweet spots, others because they are slathered with bizarrely intriguing weirdness. By way of uncreative writing, you have probably guessed that this is very much the latter.
It’s not often that you come across Turkish rock bands, in fact, Reptilians From Andromeda are possibly the first that I have listened to. With an underlying “Garage-Rock” sound, this EP is quite the release to talk about.
I have previously described bands as sounding like the true indie music of the 80s/early 90s, similar to many of the bands that I grew up listening to from the mother’s vinyl collection. Never before have I heard a band so true to those roots like Fret! are.
Over the course of writing reviews for The Cauteriser, I have somehow managed to dig into darker, dirtier and all round noisier bands as I’ve gone along. Then Capital Youth come along with something a lot more, shall I say normal? It took my ears a few play throughs to get back to grips with something that isn’t bombarded with distortion and unpredictable loudness, but damn, Lemonade is one solid EP.
