The Reytons – Alcopops & Charity Shops – EP Review

The English garage quartet, The Reytons, released the EP Alcopops & Charity Shops on the 3rd.

The searing energy can be felt warming up the room through the speakers, which I do suggest are turned up as loudly as possible prior to hitting play.

A quartet of talented musicians, who have rapidly established a keen following that can only but be built on by the five songs on EP, which is available on bandcamp.

Each track takes the listener to a different decade and reflects of British rock at that moment in time.

On The back Burner, the opener, throws the listener to ’70s new wave – which is a track that is worth the price of Alcopops & Charity Shops on its own and would typically be my pick of the release, though such is the depth to the EP, it isn’t.

Next, Harrison Lesser, is a reminder of ’80s indie as the audience reminisces of Factory Records.

The middle song Ghost is drawn from ’90s Britpop with its sense of optimistic revivalism.

The penultimate – Please Don’t Call It Time – takes the listener back to ’50s merseybeat and jiving feet.

Closing out the EP – Low Life – my pick of the release – which is the bang up to date ’10s of the palpable pent-up frustration of garage-rock.

Lifting the listener straight back to the freneticism of the iconic EP Spiral Scratch, The Naked Tungs are far more than a pale imitation as they resonate of the frustrations, tensions and anxieties of life in the ’10s with that similar raw unconstrained and uncontrived energy that marks out for a band I am looking forward to hearing much more of in due course.

The middle of the five songs Crossing was made available as a stand alone single on the 24th on bandcamp.

Last month they revealed their début EP – Cakefight 7″ EP (available on bandcamp) a five track roughly thirteen minute barrel of fuzziness that fills the room with raw delight.

By way of an introduction to Cakefight, a duo I anticipate returning to in short order, the second number – Sucks Under This Sun.
