The Gooch Palms - "Trackside Daze / Sleep Disorder" 7"
"The Gooch Palms' Leroy McQueen and Kat Friend are a total party band. They wear colorful, kitschy outfits (when McQueen doesn't lose the briefs, anyway) and sing bubblegum-flavored garage rock songs. One of the Newcastle, Australia band's best songs yet is their Urinal Cake A-side "Trackside Daze", which is accompanied by a pretty incredible video. They recorded their latest single with Bob Marshall at Bauer Mansion in San Francisco, coming out the gate with an absurdly catchy "wooo ooooh, waahhh AI YAH YAAAH" doo-wop melody. This is a song about relaxing in the sun (it's summer in Australia)."
