azores - s/t

harrisonburg, virginia rockers azores have a solid debut on their hands with their self titled album available soon on cassette via funny/not funny records. the songs combine power pop urgency and sweet vocal harmonies with solid grooves and heavy/fuzzy guitar tones.

these songs seem to be about dark partying with bad vibes and a lot of trying to drink until the pills stop working, or they work better, or something. there is a wasted, but tightly performed, swagger to them. these guys make me think of the strokes, basically.

get the tape soon from funny/not funny records. i gotta put emphasis on the fact that care seems to have been taken on this album with all things tone. it sounds good on tape!
