California X (Explicit)

California X by California X
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Don Giovanni Records
As sludgy, steely, swampy yet hook-abled rockers from Amherst, Mass., these poor dudes may never get out of the shadows of hometown heroes Dinosaur Jr. But for a new generation of restless rogues, California X do rattling noise-rock pretty damn well. Opener "Sucker" is an expansive dirge where apathy meets aggression, metal meets power pop -- for a more timely comparison, Wavves meets Japandroids. This is a balance they strike well throughout (maybe best on "Mummy"), even as frontman Lemmy Gurtowsky's muffled howls steadily wilt amid the squall of guitars.
