The Longshots is a new band from
. Their debut is a two song EP is surfy, lo-fi,
garage rock goodness. In fact the Kicker EP is sure to be one of 2012’s
sleeper’s, because it is going to come out of nowhere and blow people
away. The EP opens with “Rhode Island
Red,” a ridiculously catchy number with a great riff and hook. Kicker
closes with “Me or Fort
Worth, TX California” a
song about a lost love with another great hook.
In a lot of ways, this band sounds like a crazy mix between The
Weaklings and The Last. The only problem
with this record is that it is so short.
Two songs from The Longshots just aren’t enough. Hopefully these cats will get back into the
studio and put out some more records ASAP!
