End Of Time (2013)

If it isn't obvious, I'm always on the hunt for new bands and new music. There's something that's just so satisfying about discovering previously unknown sounds. So, I'm constantly taking chances on new bands. In the year 2013, it's pretty easy to check out a record before you buy it, and I certainly do that, but every once in a while, you just have to go in blind and that's what I did with this Wimps LP.

I heard 1 song, a song called "Naps." it was a catchy, bouncy little pop song with fuzz and hooks and all that good stuff that I like. So I picked up the record. Unfortunately all of the other songs are total let downs for me. Maybe it's just me, but I never liked the Sleater Kinney style of warbled vocals that run through this entire record. Where "Nap" has upbeat bouncy guitar, the rest of the record is just a mess of start-stop guitar and shouted lyrics.

In all, it's just not a record I want to listen to and it's really the vocals that kill it for me. If you don't mind people shouting at you, check this out. However, if you prefer a bit of melody in your singing, there's almost no way you'll like this one.
