Like “I Can’t Drive 55,” and the Corvette, Maserati’s “Earth-Like,” is a track made for high speed adventure. It just needs the right car. A pulsing rhythm track with static bass notes and steady snare hits conjures high RPMs, krautrock, and the Autobahn. While the guitars screech and scream, like scenery passing too quickly to ponder.

Plus, I can’t imagine an American longhair, revving his engine in a high school parking lot to Maserati. European speed seems a better fit, like the car company who shares the band name, Maserati. Someone get this band a commercial and get them paid. It’s too right not to happen.
