Escobar- Bird Of Prey LP. If one had to provide a simplified description of Escobar’s new album, Bird of Prey, it would be summed up as a barrage of electrifying songs spewing grunge infected trashy rock ‘n roll. This is more than obvious after checking out the opening track, ‘You Must Get Stoned.’ It sets the tone for the record by inviting the listener into their sound that’s profusely upbeat, wild and totally frantic. A super catchy formula that doesn’t let up throughout the rest of the album. These guys tend to sway towards the edgier elements of garage rock with obvious leaning towards grunge rock and you can tell they have an obvious affinity for upbeat rock ‘n roll and filthy, greasy sounds in general. You can hear elements of Nirvana, The Hives and The White Stripes cruise through these tracks as they put their own riffy Escobar stamp on ‘em. Fun record. French import.
