This Milwaukee band started in 2016 because a bunch of bored friends wanted something fun to do. By mixing up some punk, post-punk, surf and the theatrics of Spaghetti Western soundtracks, they came up with their sound. Their debut album shows off the quirky, talented group’s efforts in a tight package.

With some reverb-soaked vocals, a touch of insanity and powerful playing, this is a wonder to hear. The mix of styles all work together to create a cacophony that sounds like chaos to some, but like sweet honey poured into your earholes, it’s both comforting and strange. Strange to some, but I’ll take the comforting part, without the honey that is…. lol. The songs are fast, a bit sloppy and just this side of losing control, but crikey, what fun! “Party Shark Shake” is a fun song that will get you singing along, jumping up and down and generally acting a fool, but what a way to be.

The band sounds like they’re having the time of their lives and they bring the listener to the party and get you excited to hear more from them. This is the kind of stuff that makes me glad to review albums, a band with talent, humour and just a great listen.
