Street: 10.31.12
Zombie Book Club = The Black Keys + Max Pain & the Groovies
This local duo still has a ways to go to catch up with Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, but nonetheless, this debut album features some decent zombie tunes, if that’s your kind of thing. The band is made up of Zombie Thunder and Zombie Lightning, the monikers of Sean McKay and Willy Weyher, respectively, and features stripped-down blues, in the same fashion made popular by The Black Keys and The White Stripes. The recording is a bit primitive and unpolished, likely the result of a DIY approach, which makes the drums sound a bit subdued and thin. Overall, though, this album is a noble debut and will keep you entertained. If you’re interested in checking this album out, it’s available at Raunch Records
