New 7” of high octane garage pop fun here this week from Boston’s Muck and the Mires. It’s a brown 7” on King Yum and it’s produced by Kim Fowley. They’re playing pretty straightforward but very likeable garage along the from the school of the Standells, or more recently the Dirtbombs or King Khan and the Shrines, with a bit of that British Invasion rock’n’roll sound that’s still made by bands like MFC Chicken or King Salami and the Cumberland 5.
It’s much poppier than a lot of the garage rock doing the rounds these days, relying on upbeat vocal harmonies and energetic guitar-pop jangle rather than snarling, buzzy ‘60s-style distortion, almost heading into Big Star power-pop territory on B-side ‘Three Steps Closer’. To sum up then, these are really charming and simple pop songs with a timeless ‘60s sound and an armful of warm, bouncy hooks.
