Sweet Reaper - Street Sweeper [IMPORT] – New LP

Regular price $ 19.00 $ 0.00

The first time on vinyl!!!  2022 pressing of debut album!!!  Originally released only on cassette.  I didn't even know this existed, but it's pretty wonderful to hear their beginnings!  It's so much like the others, and it's really quite different, tank-topped kids with strawberried knees and a buzz in their eyes, imperfection built like a board in 6th period wood shop in 7th grade, maybe showing a M.O.T.O influence that I didn't recognize on the others, skate rock and power pop poured into a drained pool with a Beach Boys show playing in the distance, hints of the Who and the Kinks showing up, maybe a bit of Eddie Cochran mixed with Cheap Trick, still sounding like a late-summer early morning skateboard ride.  I don't know, I loved the others, but this might end up being my favorite.   Get it!  It's great!  -- winch (green noise)

180g vinyl with double-sided colored insert.

razorcake.org The endless shores of California are at the heart of this ragtag group of miscreants’ inspiration to pick up instruments and bash out electrifying rock’n’roll. Here we have Ventura’s Sweet Reaper, who features members of Massenger, Vnlvx, and The Spires, and sound like The Plugz being blasted through a Twin Reverb on two banana boards bombing a palm-lined hill. Yet underneath the fuzzy distortion are the tried-and-true melodies of undeniably well-written songs. The sun may be setting on the horizon, but the night is young, and Sweet Reaper are about to get the party started. –Daryl (Naked Time)
