Kanye West: The World's Number One Rockstar?
Jun 17, 2014
Hobosexual- Hobosexual II
RIYL: Japandroids, Drenge, Skid Row
Track 3- “Squish It”
Track 5- Hostile Denim
Track 6- A Motherfuckin’ Song About Robots
Track 9- Sex Destroyer
Hobosexual’s promotional line on their bandcamp.com site reads, “2 beards, 4 amps, and more raw talent than Jesus.” I couldn’t have said it better myself, boys.
The Seattle garage/metal/blues/classic/concept album/ weirdo rock duo obviously has quite the sense of humor. From their band name to track names, the two are utterly ridiculous. But one thing that’s no joke is their music. If the Black Keys had a baby with Skid Row, kicked its ass and made it listen to White Stripes, the result would be something like Hobosexual’s new album, Hobosexual II.
Combining classic rock and garage rock feels with whatever else they want, Hobosexual have created a really unique rock album that you don’t want to miss. On tracks like “Squish it” and “Hostile Denim,” the guitar and drum playing duo blow through brutal garage rock while incorporating classic rock guitar solos and Robert Plant-like vocals.
Yes, this is a concept album about robots, hobos, BMX and creeps, but the music doesn’t dabble in nonsense. No, it’s an amps-turned-all-the-way-up rock record—plain and simple.
The album’s coolest and most memorable track “Sex Destroyer” is a classic fret-burning blues-rock track, containing guitar tones that liken The Who, which plays out over four minutes of a rock and roll journey.
Hobosexual II is the weirdest but coolest thing you’ll hear all year and you’re making a huge fucking mistake if you don’t take the time to check it out.
