Kid Congo Powers & the Pink Monkey Birds/Shitbox Jimmy/The Torments

Having just released his latest Haunted Head, garage rock maven Kid Congo is touring again with his Pink Monkey Birds. Tracks off the album feature Congo’s drawling, deep voice over retro sounding guitar riffs, evoking images of pompadours and D-list black-and-white horror films. “Su Su” and title track “Haunted Head” especially show this, with catchy refrains that you’ll find yourself singing along to after the first listen. “Killer Diller” kicks it up a notch, abandoning the surf undertones of the other songs in favor of a straight-up punk sound with Congo’s vocals shouting over distorted guitar and frenetic percussion. “The Rad Lord’s Return” is a gem that walks the line of psychedelic and is entirely instrumental with a screaming guitar leading the way along a path of echoing riffs and drums. If they rock out tonight as much as this album does, then it will be $10 well spent. (Trenholme)
