They’ll probably hock a salty loogie on me for saying this, but Adult Books is the poster child for SoCal garage rawk. With origins in Laguna Niguel, the trio has been shaking up Echo Park for years with their righteous blend of surfy post-punk and raw melodic pop. Their long overdue debut full-length, Running from the Blows, drops on March 4th via Lolipop/Burger Records and will soon be a touchstone for the DIY scene. Here’s its opening track “Casual Wrecks”:
“And after dark she asked me if I knew.”
Tonight (February 15th), Adult Books continues their February residency at The Echo.
