The raw rock'n'roll behemoths OBITS are making their way back to our shores everybody! And they'll be peddling' their new album Beds & Bugs (out on Sub Pop), which we're happy to say rules, and continues to solidify the bands' standing in the of rock music genre. There's still more than a passing similarity to such bands as Hot Snakes, Edsel, Drive Like Jehu, Girls Against Boys, Pitchfork, possibly Television or the Wipers. This is un-coincidental! With the exception of those last two, Obits share members with all of those bands. Critical response to the Obit's releases has included such adjectives as: “spacious” and “jumpy” from The New York Times; “propulsive,” “sandpapery” and “sweaty” from Pitchfork; “powerfully wiry” and “declamatory” from SPIN; “driving” and “really good” from Dusted. Descriptive responses from actual, verifiable employees here at Sub Pop Records range from “fidgety,” “tight” and “loose", to “picaresque,” “pithy” and “cogent”. In short – awesome.
