‘Moonlight Kawasaki Ride’ by JETSKIIS

I got an email earlier tonight from a band named JETSKIIS who describe themselves as “a singer living under house arrest, a bassist without a valid mailing address, two recently unemployed drummers, and a guitarist in the midst of a gender epiphany.” Nonetheless I took a chance and decided to listen to what they were selling.

As it turns out they make some pretty fun music. The call it ‘island skuzz’, which is one of the most disgusting descriptions I’ve ever heard, but as it turns out it’s kind of rad. They sound a bit like Roxy Music, very lo-fi, and it really works. Definitely curious to hear more from these guys.
