Filthy Racket Bring Out Raw Energy on Their Latest EP
With the release of “Raw”, Filthy Racket does a good job of presenting themselves as pure rock enthusiasts. Instead of relying too much on one sound, they just throw a lot out there and it works for this short release. Out of the 5 tracks, you will have a hard time picking your favorite because they all have something different to showcase. Whether it’s piano, bass, or guitars, you’re going to find that there’s a lot to be found here.
Stand out tracks are definitely “I’m On My Way”, “When There’s No One Else Around”, and “Been Drinking To My Death”, but again, this is a solid effort with a good deal of energy. You’ll definitely be comparing the sounds to Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, and a little bit of Replacements for good measure. However, they break the mold here, and it’s definitely a good release, and a precursor to what very well may be coming along the way from the band.
This EP is rocking, and it’s energy packed, so don’t sleep on it. Check out Filthy Racket at their official website here, and listen, support, and check out this alternative rock band that is definitely dishing out some quality music. I like the release, and recommend it greatly.
