Pig Baby (2017)
This is the second Sir Coyler and His Asthmatic Band record I've reviewed and man, I like this one even more than the first. Maybe I just don't know where to look, but it sure seems like the west coast has way cooler bands than anything I can find here in New Jersey. Though admittedly, I've kind of always felt like that. New Jersey has never really been a hotbed of local bands that ever really jumper out at me (most of the local-ish bands I liked the most tended to be from PA.)
Anyway, back to Sir Coyler. A side "Invincible Blues" is a stone cold smash of garage-y energy. The song is built on this excellent guitar riff that pops in and out of the song accentuating each verse and transition. It's the sort of riff that gets stuck in your head for years and makes you try to think of ways to steal it without anyone else noticing.
The B side "Pink & Blue" is more subdued, taking down the tempo and fervor, but adding in a bit more melody. It's a strong and catchy song, but I'll admit to enjoying the unchained energy of the A side a bit more. Regardless of which song I prefer, both a quite good and seem to be a big leap forward from their last EP. I know I'd like to hear more.
