The Eeries: Home Alone (2012)
The key-failing of so much modern-day garage-rock is deficit of imagination, an over-studied bloodlessness that sucks the joy right of your speakers. Philadelphia, PA’s The Eeries, on the other hand, have re-discovered the joy of theft on their debut album, Home Alone. Rather then just cop riffs from the Sonics et al, The Eeries pinch from a wider palette, whether it's the Beatles, Buddy Holly or The Beach Boys these boys are on a spree and glorying in it! While the results may be deliriously retro, they're also bloody good!
