Album Review of "There Are No Rival Clones Here" by Blair Gun (8/10)

Enabler No. 6 Records/Sonablast Records

Producer: Eric Baur

San Diego post-punk outfit Blair Gun are sharp and quick to the draw, and on the latest sophomore release, they show they can be grownups with grins. Standout single “The Thief” as well as “Bitter Men” are tight, screaming (growling) garage rock influences loud and clear.

“Beat Happened” should be the track that takes Blair Gun to the next level–it’s retro, yet refreshingly new, sing-songy, high-energy fuzzy synth-pop.
