“Revolver” - Spunky Munky

comment

A track titled “Revolver” by a band named Spunky Munky evokes two simultaneous associations: the classic Beatles album and Ben & Jerry’s banana-flavored ice cream. Neither one of these is much help. While that ’60s masterpiece might be said to’ve influenced every piece of rock ’n’ roll it preceded, there’s not much Beatlesque about this song’s steady guitar strum, startlingly sharp percussion, and crackly lo-to-mid-fi production, and the slacker vocal delivery and cathartic loud-soft dynamic sound more influenced by early ’90s alt. rock. FYI — the ice-cream flavor you’re thinking of is actually called “Chunky Monkey” and it doesn’t really sound like much of anything.
