Obits 

I Blame You (Sub Pop)

Anyone familiar with the Fugazi-on-acid mayhem of Drive Like Jehu and the Hot Snakes will love this new Rick Froberg project. While the absence of Rocket from the Crypt's John Reis is noticeable, it doesn't leave Obits lacking in energy or vigour. This is as much an rockabilly-infused adrenaline rush as any Hot Snakes outing ( "Talking to the Dog" and "Widow of my Dreams"), but perhaps with just a hint of restraint, which turns up on "SUD" and the most excellent slo-burn track "Milk Cow Blues." Drummer Scott Gursky's (Shortstack) tight 180-BPM attack is countered by tight slow-arching guitar from Froberg and guitarist Sohrab Habibion.
