New Jersey’s Home Blitz are a sloppy, wet kiss when all you were expecting was a peck; wowing crowds in and around NYC as the “who the fuck was that?!” opening act. They’ve managed to capture a noisy punk recklessness while balancing a penchant for melody which forms their crooked slacker spine.
Their new home is the Brooklyn based indie, Mexican Summer Records. And with nothing more than a few 7″ singles to speak of Home Blitz are generating their own special kind of buzz. The sound rings with a blatant love for Pavement and a bit of that old, Blue Album/Pinkerton Weezer. It rambles and boils over before running headfirst into a wall of sticky sweet style.
Front man Daniel DiMaggio seems to channel Stephen Malkmus doing Stones karaoke on “Perpetual Night”. And “A.T.K.” is perfect for a summer drive with the sunroof open while you aim your finger-gun at the stars, shooting them down one by one.
