Lockette - "The Mess"

According to their Bandcamp profile, Boston's Lockette "... has a common love of the occult, fuzz pedals, and catchy hooks." I, for one, am in! Their latest single, "The Mess," shows off the second and third things in that list. It's a song filled with fuzzy guitars and is almost impossibly catchy. The guitars hold down this intense groove, and with the fuzz it's almost like a slightly more pop version of Sleater-Kinney. It's a big indie rock song that is going to suck you in to the point of nearly being mesmerized. It's going to live in that world between indie rock and larger more mainstream rock in the way that Veruca Salt did in the late 90's.

You can listen to "The Mess" below. The song is currently available as a single via Bandcamp. For more on Lockette, check out the band's Facebook.
