With a winning mixture of 60’s beach-party synth & stoner rock fuzz guitar, Brooklyn outfit Gross Relations have released their first full length album featuring a song called “Fine Tune Something”, and that appears to be exactly what the members of Gross Relations are doing. They are building upon the foundation they laid down with their September 2011 “Come Clean” EP, a six track stunner boasting the excellent “Blame the Records”, fine-tuning their way to a tight, original sound on their new album. “Discovery Zone” kicks off with a bright, major-key synth riff that invites unabashed partying. “Winter Clothes” has a less of a shiny & happy vibe, which one might guess from the title, but the less celebratory approach suits the band just as well. The mood is brought right back up with “Cut the Final Scene”, with “ooooh ooooh” backing vocals and a pacing that is perfect for jumping around one’s room (or jogging around Prospect Park, whatever). Every song is three minutes long or less (save for “Winter Clothes”, coming in at a still brief three minutes twelve seconds), each one a solid companion to the others on the album. And any band with a song titled “Mini Sofa” gets a few extra awesome points, right?
