Album Review: Stegosaur - Adventure 7"‏

Ten minutes isn't a long time to prove yourself, but that's exactly what Texans Stegosaur have allowed themselves with 'Adventure 7"'. An eclectic bunch, it's a definite case of hit and miss from the San Antonio four-piece.

Opener 'A Headache' is a short but punchy number that somehow manages a sort of Blink-182/Be Your Own Pet hybrid, that, as daft as it sounds, works perfectly. 'Big Breath' provides vocals reminiscent of Brandon Flowers on cocaine (or what I imagine that to sound like anyway), ending with a hook that really brings the song home.

Come down track 'Bloooooood' is a tad disappointing. Lyrically brilliant, but lacking ideas and direction everywhere else, it carries the record to a trudging, lack lustre finish. Not a terrible attempt from our prehistoric friends, but then again, "not terrible" doesn't get you very far.


'Adventure 7"' by Stegosaur is available now on Sea Foam Recordings.
