Second release by Los Angeles punk/surf rock trio, Lamps is Monty Buckles (guitar, vox), Josh Erkman (drums) and Tim Ford (bass) with everyone contributing vocals. For their sound, think The Cramps, Harry Pussy, or a surf band with distant punk reverb vocals. The beats are slower and steady with loud moments good for waking people up at any hour. They tracks are all short and sure many of them sound alike, but their originality comes from their blended sound. While you might not understand the lyrics, this band is definitely pissed off. I just can’t tell if they wanna hang out with Phil Dirt or piss on his face.
