SANDKINGS at Metro Times Blowout

When: Thu., April 30, 10 p.m. 2015

Grand rapids-based Sandkings play intentionally-distorted, excellent garage-pop. When you visit the band’s website, they turn your cursor into a plucked-out eyeball. Songs are moody, kind of midtempo, and we have no idea what the lyrics are to any of their songs, which is perfect. Lyrics are so overrated. They’re so good at this stuff, it’s a wonder John from Thee Oh Sees hasn’t signed them to his Castle Face label, yet.
