jerusalem and the starbaskets - dost

there's a lot of lo-fi / psychedelic stuff coming out these days and some of it is really good, some of it is pure crap. now, here's some record i'd classify as "interesting". i am not sure yet if i'll ever fall in love with the duo "jerusalem and the starbaskets" but their album has a special "something". musically it could be labelled as a country driven lo-fi psychedelic noise record, but it's by far more than that. there's the blues, there's the noise and there's a huge "garage" and even "grunge" feeling around. at parts you feel like you're in the middle of a c-class rodeo waiting for kurt cobain to jump around the corner with a cowboy hat on. it's fun listening to the record.... i'm just not sure if the fun will last for a while or if it goes by too fast!
