Bed & Bugs, the third full-length album from Brooklyn-based band Obits was released by Sub Pop Records back in September to critical praise. With the members of the band inching towards middle age, the material on the album openly poses questions about what it means to be famous and to be a relevant artist as you approach middle age with a furious roar that suggests that each member of the band will flat out refuse to go out gently into the good night. And it may well be one of the best straightforward indie rock albums you’ll come across this year.
“Operation Bikini” is the latest single and video off the album, and it’s just under 3 minutes of blistering, power chord rock that’s will wake your ass up and make you want to go out and do something as awesome as these guys. What are you fucking waiting for, huh?
