From the I-Tunes Store:
“Seattles’ Blakes recorded this exclusive live session for us, which basically explains why the Northwest has been so up-and-arms over this band. They’ve got a garage rock/British Invasion immediacy
which means each song begins like a bolt of stylized lightning – the riff is established, and then they kick in with a melody heavy on the rasp and lyrics which pronounce “thing” like “thang.” Dipping into cuts from their self-titled album like “Pistol Grip” (here stripped down a bit) and “Two Times”, The Blakes’ easy cool and sneering soul won us over.”
