Atlantic Thrills - s/t lp (Almost Ready Records)


" 'Garage Rock' has been cut up into so many subgenres and had its gene
pool polluted to the point where it's difficult to remember what an
honest to goodness garage band even sounds like anymore. Let Atlantic
Thrills remind you. There are a lot of groups today playing in one
corner of the genre, playing the same old song over and over - some do
it well, some not. But there aren't many bands that can play across the
board, any style - agitated punkers, reverb-drenched wailers,
drug-soaked psych-outs, beach party anthems, moody slow burners,
twanged-up poppers - the Thrills provide you with all of that, and in
spades. As great as "Day At The Beach" was as a single, don't let it
fool you into thinking these guys are all sunshine and kegs - there's
lots to brood on here, plenty of shadows and alleys to wander in the
midst of the partying and dancing. Good and evil, yin and yang, uppers
and downers, rock and roll, Atlantic Thrills play it all across the
duration of this LP, a hot dozen cooked to perfection in the studio and
laid on wax for your pleasure. One of the best true garage rock records
to come down the pike in some time, and perfect listening to help make
spring and summer seem that much closer - or at least keep you warm
