Salem Wolves - Black Books

A band being named Salem Wolves from Salem, MA with a song called "There Be Wytches" could be horribly, horribly wrong. Luckily, Black Books, the new EP from Salem, MA's Salem Wolves, is a solid release. It's garage rock tinged with a slightly poppier sound, but a lo-fi vibe, which gives it a Sebadoh meets garage rock sound. That fits my taste perfectly. "I Saw Hell" is a Rocket From the Crypt style rocker with a touch of glam. "Rumblr" is the thrash rock version of "I Want Candy." Black Books comes highly recommended.

Black Books is currently available through Salem Wolves' Bandcamp at the beloved "name your price" option. I don't believe they have a website, but you can like them at their Facebook page. If you're in the Boston area, they have a show coming up on April 4th at The Beachcomber in Quincy, and May 3rd at O'Brien's Pub in Allston. You can watch the video for "Rumblr" below.
