Caddywhompus - The Weight EP
(Chinquapin Records/Community Records, 2011)
Following up their incredible debut, Caddywhompus is back with The Weight, a hyper-kinetic whirlwind of awesomeness in the form of a tidy four song EP. Here is what you need to know about Caddywhompus: they’re awesome. Did I already mention that? The drumming’s ridiculous: tornado flurries pummeling the skins with alien precision. The guitaring’s equally ridiculous: manic shredding with a spoonful of feedback, the kind that’d blitz through a medium-sized paper company in five minutes (I hear IPS is planning on featuring The Weight on their website). And great, understated vocals. It’s the complete package. And, it’s free. Get swallowed up in this bliss-punk mini-epic, you won’t regret it.
