any fellow Karate Pals in the house? I first heard Bed Is In The Ocean senior year in highschool and that album always stuck out. It wasn't until 6 months ago or so I gave their whole discog a spin. Dudes voice is super unique. Psychedelic slam poetry lyrics.

Some Boots is next level. Such groovy basslines. Sporadic jazz fusion guitar licks. This is a god damn great band.

Karate is sick. I honestly wrote them off for a long time because they didn't click when I was younger and digging deep into bands that are considered 'similar'

The album that got me into em was Pockets. I love the first track

I have been slow to dig around the rest of their discography though, in no rush. I will check some boots cuz you posted it. You gonna catch them on their reunion tour? I should buy a ticket....

I had a similar relationship with the band when I was younger. I didn't have the ability to appreciate what they were doing. didn't know about a reunion tour! I'll check the dates now but I doubt they'll touch my state. enjoy that album. Lmk what you think. Airport is a stand out.

Edit: listening to Pockets. Thanks for posting.

i was really into this band in high school, revisited them somewhat recently and couldn't help but feel like geoff farina's vocals/lyrics on the later albums ruined a lot of tracks for me, like that song where he's scandalized by his friends having a bag of weed. instrumentation is fantastic though, the last half of "this day next year" is some of my favorite music ever.

just remembered i used to loop the intro to "ice or ground" and freestyle to it, that bassline is too funky
