Obits - Taste The Diff
Obits - I'm Closing In

Just in case you're not familiar, the Obits powerhouse descends from a whole slew of monumental acts that make me drool a bit - like Drive Like Jehu, and Hot Snakes, and Edsel, etc. (quite a pedigree, for sure) - and true to form, they play it fast and loose on their third full length, Bed & Bugs, following up on Moody, Standard, and Poor from a couple years back. It's dirty and sloppy and lo-fi garage rock with bits of punk and surf and a whole bunch more mixed in, and I'm really looking forward to getting sweaty and drunk while these fine gentlemen rock my face off when they roll into town for Pre-Fest later next month.
