Vacuum Spasm Babies "Whipping Clowns"
I have to start off saying how much i like the artwork for this release. Also i am quick to notice that these songs are very energetic. And from the sounds of this album it would be very interesting to see this band play live. The songs are very fun and some even have humorous sounds added to them. The voice sounds very much like the late Joe Strummer of The Clash meets Carlo Van Putten of the German band Dead Guitars.
One of the tracks reminded me a lot of the New York based band The Secret Machines. This album was very diverse in sound and was overall really hard to keep up with at times. The album has a lot of good things going on and from the sounds of things these very talented musicians will have a lot of bright years ahead.
