The Carps – It’s Raining In The Projects But It’s Sunny In Africa

The Carps are not for everyone. That said, if you can handle scuzzy bass-lines, politically charged lyrics, and propulsive percussion then you just might dig this Toronto two-some as much I have been. With two EPs under their belt and the above single recently dropping they are definitely evolving their evolving sound is getting tighter. Like a less fuzzed-out Japanther, or a less whiny Local H, they push the drummer & bassist envelope while adding their own flavor. “All The Damn Kids” is from their first EP, The Young And Passionate Days Of Carpedia, and has a bass-line that is so filthy I am blushing just listening to it. I can definitely see them putting on the kind of raucous live show that leaves you unsure of the difference between the sweat and beer on your body.
