The Missed - Stiff 7" - Gray Vinyl (/50)


Just Because (2019)

I hadn't heard of The Missed prior to receiving the 7" in the mail from Just Because.  I little perusing around the internet and I think this is their second release, after a tape that came out a couple of years ago.  It's possible they have more out there, but Discogs isn't particularly helpful and The Missed isn't an especially easy band name for Google to parse the results of.  Regardless, they seem to be a reasonably new band if nothing else.

I like all four songs on this release.  The guitar has a nice warm tone with just the right amount of fuzz.  The band is playing catchy rock and roll, it's not really poppy enough to be pop punk or fast enough to be labeled as garage, if you are trying to dole out basic genre assignments.  But whatever you want to call them, they've cranked out four really solid songs.

Of the four, my favorite is "I Wanna Know."  The choppy guitars in the verse build up to a really nice hook in the chorus and each time I've listened to the song, I end up bobbing my head along.  That's always the sign of a well written hook.  Worth checking out.
