TV FREAKS Two LP

TVFreaks Two

Hamilton, ON’s TV FREAKS return with their sophomore album titled Two. Like past records, it’s loaded with irritable treble-worship and signature frantic-yet-catchy compositions. While ripping through the same jangly and driving terrain, Two finds the band venturing into more refined and sonically complex territory. The songs are concise, demented, frenzied with repetition and just elaborate enough to stick. Ranging from in-the-red saturated guitar, to stomping low-end seizures, set against howling mantras filled with themes of melancholy neurosis. This offering is dominant collection of rabid and discerning punk songs, borrowing cues from the likes of THE STOOGES, THE GERMS, THE BIRTHDAY PARTY, or a tougher EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING. Ignore at your own peril.

Track Listing Side A: Rewind  –  Knife  –  Overreacting  –  Battle  –  Pusher  –  Game
