Tijuana Panthers seem rather proud of Poster, the album seemingly representing a step-up from the torrent of material they used to release. Still though, these twelve songs were recorded in just a couple of days, and the energy of that timescale certainly comes through. Poster is released by Innovative Leisure.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 16 September 2015

Tijuana Panthers like to make songs quick and then throw them into the wind like they would caution. This record, though, comes with a little more complacency and foresight, made as a summation of the band at their best -- okay, it took them like two days to make the darn thing, but two days is as close as these psychsters get to perfection. It’s called ‘Poster’, but under no circumstances hang it up in your room. It is music. Listen to it.

On ‘Poster’, Tijuana Panthers’ sound is a jangly, pop-laden type of psychedelia in which the surfed up riffs (washing up on Ty’s beach, not Brian’s) are given plenty of sunshine. This time, it’s like they’ve reserved a whole career’s worth of good hooks and distilled them into that sound. “Church Bell” has gorgeously toned sparkle guitars playing arpeggiated chords and swanky riffs, and it’s kissed off with a direct, catchy-as-shit chorus. The songs are showy in some ways and intuitive in others; the guitars oscillate impressively on “Power Plant”, echoing out a sort of downbeat Smiths/rapid-fire surf hybrid, but ultimately the chorus is as you’d expect: a simple phrase turned over with plenty of “oh yeahs”.

There have been a couple of psych bands writing these kind of indelible songs this year, and while La Luz come to mind, this is plain-sailing: no spooky stuff, no disconfiguring or obscuring, just good songs presented as lucidly as possible. How lovely.
