So far a number of my favorite records from 2011 have been of the dubby, electronic persuasion (i.e. The King of Limbs and James Blake). But the result of ingesting such heavy, regular doses of highly textured, electronic music, is that as a reaction, I’ve been jonesing for some good-ole’ electric-guitar wailing rock ‘n roll, and I’ve learned that I can rely on the awesome folks at Kind Turkey Records to consistently deliver a healthy dose of just that. Their latest release is a raucous trio of sly, snarling, and rhythmic garage-pop proudly dressed in a layer of grimy reverb courtesy of NYC-based Two Tears. The solo project of Kerry Davis (formerly of L.A.’s Red Aunts), this is the fiery, sneering sort of down-and-dirty rock ‘n roll that will have you stomping the floor boards and nodding your head. Hightail it over to Kind Turkey to pre-order the 7″. Personally, I’d recommend snagging the bundle that also includes the Trent Fox 7″ and Wheels on Fire 7″ as you’ll get three great singles at the best possible price.
