BRMC have never been fashionable. But when their myopic insistence on groovy psych pop pays off, it really, really does. Like on their acronoym-eponymous debut album—a timeless record you can return to again and again with exactly the same wow effect of unearthing a lost treasure.
Their charm is part style, part energy, part songs. (What band's charm isn't?) Style is perhaps the most resilient here, but overall there is a lack of all three.
While I'm thrilled they're still around, there's nothing stopping me from giving 'Take My Time/Rifles' another spin.
