Review: Brick + Mortar, 'Making Moves'

Brick Mortar Making Move cover

By: Terrance Pryor

NJ indie rock band Brick + Mortar are known for putting out tunes that titillate our eardrums. The Asbury Park duo decided to give us an extreme eargasm with their new 7" for Mad Dragon Records' Making Moves series. The new material, produced by Motion City Soundtrack's Justin Pierre and Josh Cain, sounds mature yet has the same groovy style that you would expect from Brandon Asraf and John Tacon.

The first track "Bangs" is one of the most tightly written tracks (and also one of the most grimiest sounding) that B+M have written so far in their young career. The surf rock track "Old Boy" will get you bouncing around in no time. "Other Drugs" opens with infectious drums that will draw the listener in before Asraf's crisp vocals and electronic assault take's the listener on a wicked ride. The outfit will certainly make even more moves with this fantastic release when it hits retailers June 19th.
