Goddamn! That's probably the most encapsulating expression that can be applied to Bad Sports newest platter, Kings of the Weekend. The follow-up to their eponymous 2009 record is such a burner that its impossible not to move erratically from the first moments the stylus hits the wax. The fidelity crackles with electricity and somehow the Marked Men's Mark Ryan, who recorded this one, was able to translate the band's undeniable magnetic energy to tape in a way that I haven't felt since Nobunny's First Blood hit me last year. Brimming with bubblegum hooks, scoundrel smirk and the kind of swagger they used to avert cameras from. This is just further testament that garage is ruling 2011. Needless to say, your turntable is begging for this.
