Sunwolf
Angel Eyes
El Rey Records
Street: 10.08
Sunwolf = Home Blitz + John Wesley Coleman
These guys clearly set out to make a fun album that doesn’t take itself too seriously. That being said, it probably should have taken itself a little more seriously. The lyrics are cheesy, and the instrumentals would be really well received at a high school house show. There is a lot of simple, cheesy lo-fi out there that is really good, but this album lacks the charm required to turn those weaknesses into strengths. I think the song “Fire Breathing Dragon” is trying to foster some of that charm, but the pomp and swagger in singer Rob Tifford’s voice sounds contrived and uninteresting. –Cody Hudson
