The Lovesores are the logical successor to '90s garage punk outfit the Humpers, and not just because herpes is one of the more typical outcomes of humping. They share a frontman, Scott Drake, whose vocals sound just as deliberate and pissed off as they did on the Humpers' handful of albums, the last of which harkens back to 1998. If you are fond of declaring that the Pixies were the Last Good Band before it all went to shit, the Lovesores' debut 7-inch might shut you up. Meanwhile, Pitchfork Motorway sound more like the '80s—say, if the Ramones were dragged at high speeds behind a domestic GTO down a gravel road. Maybe they think so too: "GTO" is the name of the first song on Heading West, Pitchfork Motorway's second LP. It's a tight collection of fast, boozy songs within which chain smokers indulge their affinity for call-and-response. REBECCA WILSON
