Band Recommendation: Star Spangled KGB

Star Spangled KGB are psychedelic rock n rollers from the Chicago area. The band is Jon, Alex, Thom, and Pat. They’ve just recently released their debut album Life As It Was Pt. 1 & 2. It’s chalk-full of catchy numbers from the Donnie Darko referencing “All Is Well” all the way through to the crunchy, warping psychedelia of “Monkshood.” The production particularly stands out; the album is loud and clear in being dirty. If that makes any sense. You’ll see. Songwriter Jon cites The Brian Jamestown Massacre as an influence in addition to the Mamas and the Papas. and Pixies. It’s hard losing concentration in the great mess of being swept away by the lead guitar riffs and wailing vocals. These young folks have caught my attention and probably wouldn’t mind yours.
