Clearly, Rozwell Kid are trying to get their new album, Too Shabby, stuck in your head. They’ve jammed together a bunch of power pop styles to create some sort of Frankenstein's monster of catchiness. On “Kangaroo Pocket” for example, they stick in some ripping high-pitched guitar hooks, some distortion-heavy catchy choruses, and some stretches of classic volume-up, rock-the-fuck-out breakdowns. Very reminiscent of early Weezer or The Rentals but with nods to contemporaries like Tony Molina and King Tuff.

Check out “Kangaroo Pocket” below and let it stick in your head. Too Shabby is out on November 18 via Broken World.

Rozwell Kid is going on tour soon with The World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, The Hotelier, and Posture & The Grizzly:
