The upcoming album from Milwaukee's Devils Teeth is an interesting one. According to a press release, it's "... a spaghetti western garage rock operetta inspired by the character Long Chi from the martial arts film Bloodsport." The newest single from the album, "Son of Long Chi," exemplifies that description. It's a fast garage rocker heavy on the horns. Maybe it's from watching Quentin Tarantino movies, but the song just feels like a classic car barreling towards you at full speed. Devils Teeth have created a blend of garage rock and surf rock that avoids all the corny elements both genres can fall into. It's a loud, fun burst of pure rock 'n' roll with a dark edge that makes it virtually perfect.
You can listen to "Son of Long Chi" below. La leggenda di Chong Li is due out April 2 on Triple Eye Industries. You can pre-order a copy via Bandcamp. For more on Devils Teeth, check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
