“Feel It All Day” opens the set, sounding a little bit like New Moon-era (that would be 2013, by the way) Men — crunchy guitars, shouted vocals, and some 70s-inspired soloing towards the end. Geyser reveal some of their post-punk influences on “Copper Wish” and “Jocko.” The latter, with its listing of the things that characterize a “normal guy” on a “hormone high,” is driven by a repeating bass riff; while the former is reminiscent of early 90s Sonic Youth. “Junkie” closes things out, and an intoxicating (Wow. Can’t believe I just did that.) bassline once again propels things forward.
According to the band, they recorded this EP one Saturday night last summer in an old diner. Seems appropriate. I could see listening to this while driving home at the end of a late Saturday night, wired on some bad diner coffee.
Geyser comes out April 1st on Radiclaw Records.
