So Many Things

Australia’s Eddy Current Suppression Ring has been gathering fans like lint on corduroy with its fantastically rough-edged, exhilaratingly loose, modern-day take on post-punk garage rock. After three studio albums, So Many Things comes along like a treasure chest of hard-to-find singles, compilation tracks, and other rarities that will more than tide fans over until the next studio outing. It’s a bumpy ride ahead, a thrilling jumble of styles that opens with their rare first single, “So Many Things,” a hilarious tune that sounds more like a grizzled pub band stumbling through a drunken set than a bunch of young punk upstarts. Snazzy surf guitar inflections buzz on “That Time of Day,” while “Noise in My Head” conjures The Kinks gone punk and combustible fumes waft from a cover of The Pagans’ “Boy, Can I Dance Good.” The Wire-inflected guitars on “Precious Rose” and the raucous implosion of “Get Up Morning” sound great here, nestled amongst lesser-known treats like a raw B-side track from their first single, “You Don’t Care,” and their cover of The Go-Go’s track “We Got the Beat” from a Record Store Day single released in 2011.
IN MY OPINION: It's that Raw kinda album that comes along every so often and is hailed as genius when really it's a recording of people who just don't give a f__k about over processed studio bands trying to get signed and play the game. I have a strange feeling this is what Metallica and Lou Reed were trying to do, but all that money and ego got in the way. Thanks for doing it right.
These guys pump out an awesome brand of garage rock unlike anyone else out there - so unique, yet so enjoyable. There are a lot of tracks on this album - a couple are re-records from earlier albums which are just as good if not better than the older versions. Great stuff once again.
