The Baron Four — Walking Out / Can't Find My Way
(State THS-020, 2015, 7")
by Henry Schneider, Published 2015-06-20The Baron Four is a relatively new British lo-fi garage rock band. Hot on the heels of their debut album released in December 2014, the band issues their third 45 RPM single that they recorded in February. The top side is a raw and raucous garage-band R&B tune “Walking Out” with hints of “Psychotic Reaction.” This song is only 2:28 minutes long, but it is truly amazing how much energy they cram into it. In stark contrast, the flip side is “Can’t Find My Way,” a slower and mellower tune, that fits into the lo-fi Gothic Western genre with its strumming tremolo guitar. These guys can really kick out the jams and they would have been a great 60s party band! You can easily picture young girls with beehive hairdos doing the twist.
