Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Autoramas - Nada Pode Para Os Autramas
|The Autoramas are quite something. Founded in punk, splashed with surf at times, adventurous writing and sound, and intriguing lyrics. There's lots here besides the one instro. Pop with edge and an arty underbelly.|
Picks: Multiball, Hx Cx Ix
Track by Track Review
A very gutty bass precedes shimmering tremolo guitar playing a kind of spy run. "Multiball" is a cool track that drags you in even though it's quite basic. A bit of tweaky modulated guitar at times, and an oddly thin drum break add up to quite an original instro. Quite engaging.
Heavy thunder and dark edged riff rock intensely pound in a punkoidal vein. "Hx Cx Ix" is not melodic, but the circulating riff and punk beat do command attention.
