"Let Me Dream if I Want To" b/w "The City is Dead" 7"
Brooklyn based Obits released a new two-song 7," covers of Mink DeVille's "Let Me Dream if I Want To" and "The City is Dead" by The Kids. Perfectly out of tune, attitude badly adjusted: if you couldn't get a sense of how much early punk rock owes to Nuggets-based psych garage rockers like The Seeds or The Electric Prunes, Obits, themselves somewhat built out of that sound, ably puts the "garage" across. The band has a great time with the homage, crafting a really good and entertaining two song single. I've listened to it maybe four or five times consecutively and the Animals-inspired throb of "City is Dead" is perfect for this type of format.
