As purveyors of rock and roll and fellows of the astral fringe, Washington, D.C.'s Coral Benders are no stranger to taking sonic liberties. Although the psych-garage rock band is well-known for reaching fried fish acclaim after their nautical concept album with Long John Silver's Fish Yeah! Records, the band has emerged from these watery depths— like our gilled ancestors —with their latest album, Foamin'. The record begins with nocturnal krautrock tracks and carries listeners to familiar destinations of punky, rhythmic, and spacey sounds present in the group's previous work. Their reverb-laden guitars, textured organ, and undulating bass define the high octane, fuzz-soaked cosmic rippers across their catalog.
