Things crackle to life on this short disc, goofily titled Extra Virgin Olive Oil, by layering Peter Seays great, big, grinning voice over his vintage, red dirt-crunching guitars (reinforced by fellow riffing ace AJ Sadeghi), which lick their way across the opening track, Aborigine.
EVOO makes for a fun, heavily stoned 18 minutes of music, from the off-kilter rhythm of My Lover to Public Display of Affections appropriately playful tempo and the conflicting guitars on Shes Mine, which seem to be engaged in a pretty heated argument.
The EP creeps along at a lecherous pace, and seethes with as much romantic desire as it does self-destruction. So its pretty much in line with most of the music the Rolling Stones ever recorded. Locally, Junebug Spade seems to compare as The Pretty Black Chains stoner cousins.
