Hot dog we’re excited to have gotten our hands on the new Gonks album, put out by San Francisco’s Rocks in Your Head Records (Sonny Smith’s babychild). Five Things You Didn’t Know About The Gonks arrives November 22 and is led by teen Ava Lynch on vocals and drums, with Sami Perez on vocals and bass. As Smith says, “In the shortest description it has a kind of Shangri La’s meets Tronics thing.” Voila, and we’re sold. “I’m A Lonely Night Driver” is a sweet showcase of Lynch’s vocals and track “My Glamorous Mother” has a solid Kinks feel we’re digging on pretty hard. Shout out to the sax on “I’m Dead” and blessings to Rocks in Your Head for that’s coming down the line for the label.
