The crunchy, soulful garage rock stylings of Clear Plastic Masks new album Being There is now in full streaming at SPIN. Their sound is kind of like if the Big Bopper, the Kinks, Lou Reed and Springsteen all came together to do a gospel record (but not TOO gospel-y). Awesome, right? The guitars are especially overdriven and the vocals are gritty. There are big cymbal crashes and quiet waltz interludes. The Masks opened for Hurray for the Riff Raff when I wasn’t able to see them back on Easter weekend, and I think this will be one of the best indie rock releases of 2014. Jack White and Against Me! – you’re on notice.
