Download: The Three 4 Tens--"Everyday"
The Rainbow Quartz label returns with another batch of wonderful power pop; this time is comes from the Three 4 Tens, a group that seems equally adept at ringing jangly rock and dystopian, sludgy JAMC-style fuzz. It's a great romp (I'll try to refrain from using the word psychedelic in any manner--man, we overuse it...hey! it's what we dig!) and a real grower as an album, which ain't a bad thing at all. Plus, compared to a lot of similar bands, they go for interesting textures and frequencies beyond the normal Rick guitars and punchy bass tones.
