MP3 of the Week: The Big Big Bucks

The Big Big Bucks, "Arsenal Complements Wardrobe" (mp3)

Fresh-faced Allston foursome THE BIG BIG BUCKS blend the anvil-heavy blues rock of early Zeppelin with the melodicism of classic pop in a sod-off punk-rock sorta way that would make Kurt Cobain proud. They’ve been passing around CD-R copies of their debut EP, Rabbit Rabbit (which they recorded with Jack Younger at his Allston analog wonderland Basement 247 Studios, where they’re holed up now working on their first full-length), since last summer, but we’re told an official release is on its way. Rabbit’s manic centerpiece, “Arsenal Complements Wardrobe,” starts out as a double-time rave-up before devolving into a feedback-and-organ sludge-blues orgy. Snag a disc from the band when they play Great Scott January 17.
