As I mentioned, in their interview, listening to Max Pain and the Groovies is the glorious chaos of a garage band, with the musicality of a jam band. There is something intriguing about a band that has so much music in them and such talent that is starting their raise to a nation wide indie band. There is something both raw and endearing about this.
The album came out late last year and brings something tangible to their act. Like with many bands starting out nowadays, their first album is merely a way to get their music into people’s hands; an attempt to spread their music to new ears. The album, on Spotify, is free, in fact, there at the artist’s expense. The copy at the concerts are burned and printed. This matches their garage nature.
The music on the album has the same sense of motion and chaos. Though, in many respects, more controlled than their concerts; the album still has a powerful and overwhelming nature. The music is heavy on the blues and instrumental, but the instruments are often loud and the vocals are sometime buried. However, the sense of control and musical fun is still there. The album needs to be heard with cans on; you need to get that overwhelming feeling of noise and music. The album sounds like you are listening to band destroy a basement at a party or tearing up a local dive bar.
The music starts slow and builds. Listen to this single, you will not regret it; assuming it is loud enough.
