Review by Justin White


Steve Adamyk Band - Monterrey

For those who are familiar with Steve Adamyk Band, go and buy this. It’s like their older works, but with tighter playing and better production values which in no way betray the rough, garage-inspired feel of the early records. Someone gave them a budget or something, and they didn’t fuck it up. Hooray!

For those who aren’t familiar, I recommend this as a great starting point. The title track is thick and hard like they do it out east: think the Vapids, Head, or parts of the more recent Riverdales records. The other three tracks have more of a fast and poppy feel, without being pop-punk; think the Briefs and Marked Men. You can’t go wrong with this one.
