Acid Baby Jesus Acid Baby Jesus
Hailing from an ancient country rich in historical attributes, yet poor economically, Greek garage punks Acid Baby Jesus are the perfect by-product of their environment, spawning twisted grooves to revolt to, much like England in the '70s during the first wave of British punk. Although lighter on the attitude and heavy on the psychedelics, Acid Baby Jesus create fuzzed-out pop ditties that sound like something that escaped from mad scientist Brian Eno's lab after crossbreeding the Cramps with the Black Lips. The reverb-saturated "Homo Sapiens" is a guitar-driven hell ride, as the same bluesy riff pounds ruthlessly, nearly bludgeoning its listener, while the sickly '50s shimmy of "I'm a Baby" is as danceable as self-deprecation can possibly be. The album's strongest effort, "Tooth to Toe," perfectly balances dreary lyrics with sugary harmonies, providing a hint of light in an otherwise dark song. This is an album for those who want to experience their music rather than just listen to it and Acid Baby Jesus's sophomore release is one hell of a trip. (Slovenly)
