The Fleshtones and Charming Birds

On one previous record, the Fleshtones covered Led Zeppelin's "Communication Breakdown," and on their latest, Brooklyn Sound Solution, they cover the Beatles' "Day Tripper." You are right in thinking these dead-horse songs need never, never, ever be covered, but the New York garage rockers—who are among the original torch-carriers that led to the garage rock revival of the early '00s—are quite happy living in a bubble where fashion, culture, and rock 'n' roll haven't changed one whit since the '60s. So instead of innovation, the Fleshtones offer a retro dance party with tons of energy via surf-rock guitar solos, vamping R&B, swingin' drums, and a big ol' boner for the Nuggets comps. Considering they've been at it since the halcyon days of CBGB, it's clear they're true believers. NED LANNAMANN
