The Intelligence return to the fold with another collection of blown out, schizophrenic rock n' roll. As always the band is anchored by Lars Finberg, but since their last outing the main force has joined Thee Oh Sees on drums and Wounded Lion on guitar and drums. It seems that playing with a few other West Coast erratic outfits has only refined Finberg's vision and Everybody's Got It Easy But Me winds up being one of the band's most accessible offerings to date, bouncing all over the garage-punk universe and landing some solid punches in the process. Finberg seems clearly aware of the pitfalls that have begun to emerge in the garage idiom and he's taken pains, as usual, to distinguish The Intelligence from a few of their peers via an elastic sense of influence and a predilection for the frayed edges of the pack. Hell at this point there are so many releases by these guys its hard to keep track but this one's floating to the top of the necessary inclusion pile for sure.
