A label like Alive Naturalsound could be interested in a band like The Gama Sennin, whose sound (gobs of guitar distortion) coolly conjures the psych-garage attack of classic ‘60s artists who spewed out a raw brand of punkish rock & roll. That spirit is alive in songs such as “I Kill You,” the stomping, accusatory “Trigger Finger,” and the heavier “Premonitions,” with its grand guitar growl and cool, woozy finale. And we have to mention singer Kevin McGuire, whose natural voice has the ideal tone, texture and attitude for this stuff. While “Trigger Finger” caught our ear the most, we also suggest that the band structure their songs so that they climb and build up to deliver a more killer climax.
