Canadian, Garage, Listen, lo-fi, Music, Pop, Punk
by Mark Anthony Brennan
The self-titled EP by Vancouver’s Skinny Kids is garage rock perfection. Into the mix they throw glitter rock (“All Gold” and “Cool Fetish Girls”), surf guitar (“Love Cult”), psychedelia (“Sandal and Peppermint”) and even a touch of goth (“Greek Women”).
The Good: “Sandal and Peppermint”. Garage rock with a punk snarl. Think The Kingsmen with dog collars.
The Bad: Part of their charm is their DIY, lo-fi approach, so can it last?
The Skinny: Give these guys a full album and they’ll give the likes of Shimmering Stars and Monomyth a run for their money.
