Four Bad Lovers Sitting in a Tree

Bad Lovers is a new project from members of Restrained. This Los Angeles-based punk outfit offers four songs on their demo recording. Musically, I am reminded of The Jesus Lizard, Sonic Youth, late Black Flag, and other noise-punk outfits. You’ve got that down and dirty approach to punk with droney riffs and the little flairs of grunge and metal inserted from time to time. The recording quality isn’t the best, but this is a demo, so it’s kind of understandable. I’d like to see where the band takes things with their next recordings. I’m not sold yet.
