|I can't sleep...|
Rozwell Kid, for as far as the post-90's pop rock scene goes, is probably the best that the genre has to offer. I had previously given my praise for their 2014 LP Too Shabby for being one of the most cleverly accurate depictions of depression that I've heard in a long time. And while Good Graphics doesn't exactly carry the clever song writing that Too Shabby possessed it's still an incredibly fun and well put together EP that should be given a spin.
Good Graphics packs a heavy punch instrumental wise, with loud, buzzing riffs and string arrangements that flow in smoothly with one another and create plenty of catchy hooks to latch onto. There are also a lot of little things that make them stand out, such as the final track's conclusion, where the lead guitar repeats the same notes over and over as it becomes quieter and quieter until eventually the guitar is unplugged and all that can be heard is the plucking of muted notes. It's little touches like that which give the EP an extra boost in musicianship that I really appreciate. While the lyrics may feel a little nonsensical, they're still fun to sing along to and catchy. Even if a little silly. There's a lot more to be said about this EP, but I just say go give it a spin, you won't regret it.
You can stream, download, or buy Good Graphics here. If you like what you hear consider supporting Rozwell Kid by throwing a few coins their way or by purchasing the vinyl copies of their previous album Too Shabby here. You can also share this EP with your friends! Who knows, maybe they'll love some Weezer inspired pop rock. Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
