The Daily Choice: The Bad Lovers – Things I Forgot
The Bad Lovers, a trio of Austin rockers, could’ve been sucked through as seething time-space wormhole in to the modern day. Though the band looks like your more standard, hipster long-hairs, the sound they craft exists somewhere in The Beatles world pre-Revolver. Short, sharp bursts of twang brush nicely with the McCartney like vocals of the lead singer, all wrapped in to a particularly vintage feeling sound. Perhaps The Bad Lovers aren’t torch bearers for overflowing originality, but this is a choice cut none the less. The type of melodic proto-punk that gets the skirts spinning and arms flailing.
The Bad Lovers album Actin’ Strange is out now on Burger Records.
