BTV’s beloved surf punks have gone through some changes in sound and personnel since their debut album. This record is a much fuzzier and more psychedelic record than their first, with more complicated song structures and a lot of horror allusions, but the core of their sound – chiming surf riffs and confessional, emotionally forthright lyrics – remains the same. This is music that will fill dingy basements with slam-dancing bodies once things get to be a little more normal.
