... At Night

Tape Deck

ATX fretboard phenom Jamey Simms spikes Detroit-style rock & roll with soulful speed on his new cassette. Check Side A sweet spot "Convolution," Chuck Berry high on the MC5, and tempo-shifting epic "Oh Yeah," showcasing Amplified Heat drummer Chris Ortiz's preternatural skill. Simms' reverb-stained yelps slice through the gain on the New York Dolls-like strutter of "Time Keeps Slippin'."
