I love the intensity of this trio. The bass is very meaty, like Krist Novoselic. The guitar never changes tone and the drums are poppy. Monster Treasure don't need much to communicate. Two of the members are women and they often each sing different parts, adding a welcome dynamic to the sonics. Monster Treasure are what The Muffs hath begot.
I wish the vocals were a bit less breathy 'cause I'd like to know what 'Assholes' is on about. Meanwhile 'Psychedelic Girl' is a faithful pop-punk tune.
Score another win for Stockton and, by proxy, Brooklyn's Harlot Records, which seems hell-bent on signing every damn act in that scene. So far, so good.
The Verdict: 3 Bedpans
