REVIEW: Ba'ad Trip - Beach Flower digital EP (self-released)

Ba'ad Trip play junky, lo-fi punk reminiscent of Stooges with a spooky twist...complete with ski masks!  These dudes have a really cool recording style too.  The instrumentation is muffled, fuzzy, dry and tastefully staged.  The vocals are warm and distorted with a little delay/echo that gives the whole sound its "spooky" rockabilly feel.  Which explains why this EP was released on Halloween last week.  The overall charm of their approach makes the few rhythmic hiccups completely forgivable.  Get it here.
