Second track reminds me of THE DEAD MILKMEN (it's the meandering bass line that does it), and the vocals sound like GRUMPIES, and sometimes (just sometimes) the reverbed guitar sounds like a more surfy East Bay Ray - so yeah, I'm sold. Dreamy and endearing garage punk with a laid back vibe and a penchant for irreverent hooks. I feel like THE DEATH would thrive in the Midwest pop/garage scene, but hopefully they play with hardcore bands when they are at home in Japan. "Reality Or Fantasy" is the angular jerky weirdo jam of the week...in case you were wondering. This one keeps growing with repeat listens.
