Stuff yourself full of “Chicken, Cheese & Beer,” as Halifax’s The Brood mime 70s weirdo rock with a zany blend of irreverent wit, gummy synths and surf guitar. Once you’re finished that hearty meal, sweat out those carbs and do the twist on a checkered linoleum dance floor. Nods to Devo, the B-52s and Elvis Costello abound, yet the group manages to pack more than enough pep with their throwback rock n roll vibes to make this track fresh and fun. Oh, and bring your cowbell for the breakdown.

The Brood’s Transistor is out now.
