New Discovery: The Routes

We like garages, and we really like rock. And we really, really like garage rock, wherever it originates. I feel confident in saying that right now The Routes are our favorite Japanese garage rock band. The Routes aren't trying to invent something new, and they aren't following the fuzzy take on the garage sound played by many current bands. Instead, they produce a clean and faithful version of the 1960s UK and US garage band sound. Their most recent album is Alligator, which is released on Dirty Water Records:
