There’s nothing fancy, or particularly strange, about “Starved For,” by the Olympia, Washington power trio, Strange Wilds, and, that’s exactly what makes it so enjoyable. Their plug-in, rock out attitude can be traced back to the ’90s and bands like Mudhoney and Seaweed, and even contemporary neighbors like Milk Music. Clocking in at just under three minutes, the bullshit-free “Starved For,” has enough time for some good licks and some good shouts. Give me ten more tracks like this one and I’ll be a happy man. Subjective Concepts will be out July 24th on Sub Pop Records.
