EP REVIEW: BUZZ & THE PICKUPS – Buzz & the Pickups
Black Garage Records
Reviewed by Shane Pinnegar

Grab your board and hit the half-pipe for this quiet-loud-quiet ‘90s-reminiscent EP from Melbourne trio Buzz & the Pickups.

It’s a fun ride, dude – tubular, even, with a strong whiff of Dinosaur Jr (surely a great thing for the many J Mascis-ites out there) especially on opening track Boo(s)t.

Jangly guitar gives way to fuzzed out Sonic Youth riffs, lyrics are feel of teen student angst, and it’s a nice place for these guys to start.

Next stop: develop their individuality a little more, work on the promise easily seen in their songwriting, and checking in with them for their next release should be even more of a, errr, buzz.
