The Rakes – 22 Grand Job (CD Review)

The Rakes are re-releasing one of their early singles, a 7″ released on Trash Asthetics, to a wider audience. ’22 Grand Job’ is a tale of wage envy that is excessively catchy and stands out as one of the finest tracks on The Rakes debut album ‘Capture/Release’. If you fail to be caught up in the raw energy and enthusiasm of the song then you’re a waste of ears.

Buy ’22 Grand Job’ from Amazon
