Porno Mags is a Chi-town rock crew formed in July 2013. Their sound encompasses elements of garage, surf, punk, and new wave rock. The self-titled release is a lo-fi beach party with something for everybody interested in music that sounds like it was made in yr parents’ garage. Their sound is similar to bands like togetherPangea, The Orwells, FIDLAR.
Naïve Thieves straight up sound like a sunnier version of The Strokes. Vocalist Cameron Thorne shares Julian’s too-cool-for-school nonchalant singing and even sounds enough like him at times for it to seem intentional. Even so, the Riverside, CA quartet have crafted a rad summer album that stands on its own even with the similar sounds. Vamonos is catchy and clever garage rock soaked in California surf.
