Obits: I Blame You (LP) 2009

I Blame You

Subpop 785
Produced by Sanoff-Janney & Obits

Recommended ****
Debut set from this Brooklyn outfit of rock & roll veterans.  The set is consistent throughout with several highlights, has a hard-rock garage sound with a heavy bass-driven backbeat, the powerpop influence becoming clear on the last cut, a number called “Back & Forth.”  The songs are credited to the band except one cut, a solid cover of “Milk Cow Blues.” 
This album is one of Subpop’s better 21st Century offerings, should appeal to most anyone with rock & roll running through their veins.
