Catch the Buzz: A.M.

April 10th, 2008: As seen on SPIN (PDF)

Who: This power trio comprising bassist Bradley, drummer Karin, and guitarist Fonzie (all three provide vocals) sling just-over-one-minute fuzz atop American-bred Oi! as if Stephen Malkmus was forever caught in a punk conniption fit. Chords come in threes — tops — behind rocker-chic drumming a la Janet Weiss, reducing inhibitions to adolescent freak-outs with that brand new Fender Strat and hum-rattle amp. Doesn’t matter if you understand what they’re saying, so long as you’re there to scream along.

Their latest: A.M./No Paws (No Lions) split 7″ out now via Silencio Recordings
