Album Review: Obits - Beds & Bugs

26 September 2013 | 4:22 pm | Steve Bell

Another fine batch of slightly off-kilter but otherwise pristine rock’n’roll from one of the best guitar-slingers around.

More Obits More Obits

4 stars

Bed & Bugs offers a slightly different inflection of garage-infused punk than previous Obits releases – not a jarring shift, just a tangibly different vibe. It's not laid back per se, just slightly more relaxed, and touches of psych-folk (Machines), surf (Spun Out) and even swampy blues (Malpractice) come into play, although foot-to-the-floor rockers (I'm Sick, I'm Closing In, Taste The Diff) still rule the roost. Frontman Rick Froberg's immaculate pedigree is still prominent; another fine batch of slightly off-kilter but otherwise pristine rock'n'roll from one of the best guitar-slingers around.
