Indiana brothers Timmy and Kyle Gross with Matt Banks and Nick Dehmlow play more pop than punk on Get Soaked, their second album after 2009’s Time To Go Now. The songs aim somewhere in between THE STOOGES and THE BRIEFS but without any of the necessary attitude. Standouts include the opening tracks, “As the World Goes Round” on the a-side and “Girl Like You” on the b-side, the two of which would make an excellent single, and “Don’t Want Nobody” that differentiates itself from the rest by featuring back-up vocals by Dana Lynn (DRAW BLOOD, DANA LYNN & THE DIRTY CREEPS). There’s no surprises on here, just party-ready rock’n’roll about girls and feelin’ alright. (Janelle Hollyrock)
