Swirly, pleasant melodies, smart lyrics and occasionally crunchy guitars make up Warbly Jets eponymous debut album, released in October. The Los Angeles-based quartet has a garage-influenced sound with a healthy dollop of sophistication and provides a bit of reminiscence of the ‘80s psychedelic pop scene. Highlights include “Keep Pushin” and the bouncy “4th Coming Bomb.” Some of the tunes are more on the heady/ trippy side (“PT. II,” “Head Session”) but with songs including “Raw Evolution” in the mix, it all balances out for a good listen. Oh yeah, and they’re cute guys!
