Track Of The Day: Thick Shakes - "I Said So"


I can imagine it now: a tattered, despondent-looking group from the east coast gathered around a small space heater in an old shed, thrashing through punk rock and grunge jams as the crisp winter air creeps slowly in each night. On "I Said So," the newest track from Boston's Thick Shakes, the group matches the deceitfully quick change of the seasons with their blistering guitar work, suffocating drums, and piercing vox keys. It's two minutes of audacity without the need for subtext or an agenda, and it represents how beguiling garage rock can still be when it holds itself to those standards.
