The Longshots: Kicker (Ep, 2012)

Kicker E.P. cover art

Un estallido de distorsión a medio camino entre el Rock más garajero y el Rockabilly es lo que te encontrarás si oyes este disco de debut de los tejanos The Longshots. Desde luego es el tipo de música que más rápidamente asociamos cuando oímos la palabra Texas, pero es una realidad palpable el hecho de que el Rock sureño encuentra en tierras tejanas su máxima expresión. Este Ep (que es desgraciadamente demasiado breve para ser un Ep) nos muestra dos ejemplos perfectos de ese Rock acelerado: hooks agresivos, ritmos celéricos y energía hipervitaminada. Nos lo ofrecen gratuitamente desde su Bandcamp.

The Longshots – Kicker (Ep, 2012)

“On “The Kicker” EP, Fort Worth Texas’ The Longshots come out of the barn like bi-coastal frequent flyers. The two tracks featured on the EP,
“Rhode Island Red” and “Me or California” each come in at just under three minutes and have a loose, jangley, Garage Rock meets Rockabilly vide. Add a little bit of an early 80’s
Alt Country vibe and a production quality that leaves a lot to be desired and you’ve got The Longshots. “Kicker” didn’t really inspire more than a few casual listens. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it was a terribly bad record. The band is still in their early stages and certainly have time to grow. Texas is a big state so I’m sure they have lots of room too. The gentleman that heads up the bands label mentioned he couldn’t stop talking about these guys. Perhaps I should have allowed him to expound on his feelings about the band.
I myself, am at somewhat of a loss for words. James Damion” (unitedbyrocketscience.blogspot.com)
