ANIMAL CITY

Bump Head Go Home

(Sophomore Lounge - SL073) LP $15.00

The camcorder-shorts-turned-classic-stoner-pop visions of Chicago’s long-running rhythm-and-boozers evolve restlessly with each passing project, pig-roast after pig-roast, year after year. Here they trade the lakehouse electronic tricks of 2013’s See You In The Funny Pages for raw and honesty — full-on rock modes, jazzed up and peaking-out pawn shop amps, peripheral nods toward posters of Thin Lizzy, Magic Sam, Joe Walsh, and Wilco.
