Lomita

Stress Echo

Lomita's nine-song debut plays out like a deep-fried dark night of the soul. The Austin quintet's gritty concoction of tripped-out twang, whiskey-bent trash rock, and Idiot-era Iggy Pop emerges almost fully fanged. The Pavement-flavored "I Got a Feeling" starts Stress Echo out on a jagged pop precipice that could go either way before the dilated warble of "Venom Flash" heralds the crossover into a David Lynch-directed universe of confounding high loneliness.
