"Resin Gypsy" (Self-released; 2013)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Dynamic New Jersey duo Resin Gypsy administer an acidic 70s hard rock flashback via their eponymous eight-track debut.

Proudly recreating bluesy kaleidoscopic guitars and trippy driving rhythms from rock'n'roll's summer of love era (“Caravan Song”), this tandem puts their Zeppelin-meets-Cream education (“Time to Go”) through the wringer with supple splashes of brawny bravado from 90s bands such as Sugartooth, Nebula, and fellow statesmen Monster Magnet for a tantalizing time machine trek worthy of repeated listens (“Moonlight”).

In fact, multiple spins are not only recommended but are required to fully feel Resin Gypsy’s down and dirty good time vibes (“Two Pennies”).

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
