New EP: The Offsides || The Offsides EP

Following up on our post on the excellent Tha Retail Simps LP, here is some more rock-‘n’-roll weirdness. The Offsides are a new trio ( Paul Misuraca, Pietro O’Rourke and Keith Smith) from Detroit that plays a mix of r’n’n, blues and (post)punk.

My favorite song on this six song EP is Herky Jerky. The singer sounds a bit like Joe Strummer on the song, giving it the feel of a Clash outtake. The Cowboys are another reference point for the sound of The Offsides.

Interesting and eccentric first outing that definitely caught my interest. The Offsides EP is out now in a small run of 50 tapes at Detroit label Painters Tapes.
