I still regularly play “Bloodsucker,” the 2014 hit from Mozes and the Firstborn; I’ve been waiting for the group to replicate the joy of that song…and today seems to be the day. The Netherlands-based act just delivered a power rocker that’s bound to have you singing the chorus as your car speeds down the road, wind at your back. Give me hooks and chugging chords any day and I’ll be stoked on it. Sometimes the simplicity of pop rock just does it for you; you turn it up, you rock out with a toothy grin and the rest of the world is right. Give a listen won’t you.
Seems like it’s going to be a pretty good year for Slumberland Records. They’ve already tossed out the new Wax Idols/Girls Names/Golden Grrrls LPs, and now they’re set to release Long Enough to Leave on June 18th. On the latest hit from The Mantles, the group offers up a bit of nostalgia to go with their blend of garage-pop; it’s current, but could easily fit into the late 60s. There’s definitely an evolving spirit from the San Fran/Oakland group that has my ear perked for the full-length. Just more great hits from SR today I guess!
