The press release for Endless Boogie’s debut LP claims that it is ‘the best rock record to come out of New York City in years (maybe decades)’. That’s a very big call, especially when Focus Level doesn’t sound especially NYC. Indeed, the swampy blues-rock we have here has more in common with ZZ Top and Canned Heat than it does with, say, The Strokes. There’s a bit of The Stooges to this thing too.
