Try, Try to Get, Get Over It!

Archie Bronson Outfit has always fascinated me.  They're all kinds of 60's garage-noise-jangle and stabbing lovesick deranged-ness channeled through driving drum lines punctuated with Sam Windett's frantic vocal swagger.  He sounds unhinged.  Their first two albums bent towards obsessiveness through blues-influenced claustrophobic psychedelia.  Their third album? Well.  They took on producer Tim Goldsworthy--and took on a dance-punk sensibility that somehow manages to work.  It is the strangest thing, in a way, but not really all that shocking when you give it a go. 
Somehow it makes sense.
