Album Review: Philadelphia Grand Jury - Summer Of Doom

"...a polished little gem."

More Philadelphia Grand Jury More Philadelphia Grand Jury

Four years since announcing their hiatus (with a brief run of reunion shows in between), Philadelphia Grand Jury step back into the spotlight with Summer Of Doom.

Seemingly putting their foot forward for the roadtrip soundtrack of the summer festivals, the Philly Jays have crammed waves of bouncy fuzz bass and bubbling harmonies with the lively Berkfinger vocals we know and love into just over 30 minutes of short, punchy indie-rock.

Live session recording with little to no editing aids the genre-swapping tracks such as Spend More Time and Chris Is In A Jam without holding up the record's flow, and rounds out a polished little gem and welcome return from the Sydney lads.
