Japanther - Skuffed Up My Huffy

Japanther is one of those bands that has always intrigued me but never really excited me. Their albums came off as scatter shots of noise and lo-fi pop hooks that occasionally hit their mark, but far too often came off as sounding undeveloped. With Skuffed Up My Huffy, it seems that Japanther has finally recorded the cohesive album that they've been on the verge of making for years. Though occasionally a bit repetitive, the bulk of these tunes will definitely have your feet tapping, and the crazy samples sprinkled throughout the album really give it a sound that is unlike anything else.
