LA band Blackfeet Braves have just released a full-length on local label Lollipop, and it's 12 tracks of Standells/Seeds-style garage that really wring out everything the genre has to offer. Unlike a lot of bands that just wanna play fuzzed-out riffs fast, Blackfeet Braves aren't afraid to go slow and sinister if the song demands, which means there are plenty of bleaked-out moody tracks here that would have made for great B-sides back in '66. The Allah Las and the Growlers are ruling this kind of sound now, and Blackfeet Braves drift a little more toward the Allah Las side of things. That means more elegance and less esotericism—music that digs a little deeper than the next band.
