Formed a couple of years back, weened on a diet of house parties, skateboarding and generally enjoying life to the max, LA’s FIDLAR have come to the fore with their own take on their influences – surfier, faster, more fuzzed out, more personal and almost certainly more drunk than any of them. Live shows have also included tracks by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Warren Zevon and Blink 182 amongst others and does further to enhance their reputation.
The album, recorded and self-produced at the band’s home studio with mixing duties handled by Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith, Beck, Guided By Voices) is fourteen slices of insanely catchy and aptly titled punk rock tunes that look set to become favourites over the coming months.
The band’s recent UK shows saw the quartet completely win over a burgeoning fanatical audience and will undoubtedly see similar scenes on their return early in 2013…
