Liquor Store are out for a good time. Their first album, Yeah Buddy, featured an attractive woman with massive boobs on the cover and tracks with titles like, "Manchild in Paradise," "Jerkin' It," and "Proud To Be An American Man." Think playful rock 'n' roll at its most boyish: The band wear a seal of approval from everyone's favorite Nashville garage band Diarrhea Planet (not to mention, share more than a few sonic similarities) and New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus. Las Rosas veer on the jangly side of things and Shalom distort punk with lively reverbed darkness, a well-rounded lineup for the guitar lover.
