I was working in north Jersey this week, and my friend Sam was nice enough to take me out to a show at Brooklyn’s Union Pool. I’d originally intended to write up a review for the blog but, truth be told, not many of the bands really caught my ear (though the crowd was WAY into both Savants and The Yin Yangs, so maybe I just don’t know what I’m talking about). The one exception was locals Acid Dad, who did a good job mixing the Black Lips’ southern charm and White Fence’s hazy psychedelia. “Brain Body” slows things down a bit, but the payoff about halfway through hits hard.
***EDIT*** – Listening to Savants’ bandcamp page, I think I gave them a raw deal in my original post. So here’s one of their songs, too:
