After a split cassette on the Sturdy Girls label last year, JENSEN SERF COMPANY come back with a new 7″ on Daddy Kool Records. Hailing from St. Petersburg in Florida, this duo brings us some twisted garage rock that is all their own.
Considering the quality of material that came with their debut cassette, it was tough not to go into this single with high hopes. That tape featured an experimental form of weirdo, psyched-out garage rock and this 7″ only continues the wild pace. Considering their experimental qualities, JSC has this tendency where their songs can suddenly change direction right in the middle, leaving you in a dazzled state as you try and to figure out what hit you. A four and a half minute track like “Freak Museum” goes a long way to speak for that claim – it gives the duo plenty of time to assault our ears with the crunch of staggering psych guitars and breezy, surfy, strung-out pop that’ll have you spinning this stuff all night. Aside from that, another track like “Memory” becomes an instant classic with its twangy guitar leads and propulsive energy.
So after their initial tape and this new 7″, it would be a smart move to keep a close eye on Jensen Serf Company. Now let these songs below do the talking.
