Let the Good Times Roll: Quasi’s new release

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Portland based indie rock vets Quasi’s new release American Gong starts like a fight you didn’t know you were in but ultimately is simple and heartfelt. A few tracks like the ultra bizarre standout Howler are more experimental (like a mid-western kid who just smoked pot for the first time) but still hold on to the rock song structure the same with the lyrics,that speak of bloodshot minds,Humpty dumpty,crystal balls,and little white horses. Overall American Gong is a good fuckin’ rock album.
