Philly Local Philes: Acid Kicks’ “Life Dreams”

Some bands – garage-rock duos, indie-punk trios – decide not to enlist a bassist. Philly experimentalists Acid Kicks prefer several. Outdoing 90s underground juggernaut Girls Against Boys in their embracement of the low end, these guys self-describe as “three bass players, one drummer, and the search for the punk rock American dream.” I call them a group of exciting players with an abundance of texture and imagination. Check out the title track to their new 7″, Life Dreams, below; the single is being released this Saturday in a party at Kensignton art space Little Berlin.
