Woozy Viper | Woozy Viper

       This Brooklyn band reminisces on the beach days of the 60's and 70's on their self-titled debut. This album which they are giving away for free is comprised of a few catchy tunes but at the same time quite a few boring and repetitious. The semi-lo-fi sound is unique because it isn't the almost grunge-like scratchiness of Wavvves but it is a sound all their own. It feels like it was thrown together a little quickly just to get some material out there and when it comes to free music, you can't always expect the best. But I'd say it is worth a listen, certainly if you think the cover is interesting, they sound very much like you would expect.

Gems: "Dirty Rat," "Speaking in Toungues," "The Switchblade Swing"
Cocktail: The Black Keys meets Ezra Furman and the Harpoons meets Japandroids
