Psychedelic rockabilly (though decidedly not "psychobilly", which is something else entirely) instrumental acts are hard to come by. Probably for good reason.
The Argonauts add a bit of garage surfer dude to the musical lexicon, and that lightness diffuses any potential menace from the clouds of distortion. The loopy keyboards (almost Moog-style at times) enhance this playful feel.
Some albums are just plain fun. The Argonauts didn't set out to create the next great album. They just put together a large passel of songs that scream good times. I could write a long and complicated review for this set, but honestly, simplicity is called for here. The Argonauts are what they are: great balls of fun.
