The Night Times — Watch Your Step / I Got My Mind on You
(State THS-032, 2019, 7")

Los Angeles garage-rock sensations The Night Times have released a new single, “Watch Your Step” b/w “I Got My Mind on You,” two high-power three-minute songs. “Watch Your Step” is a jangling garage beat song that pulls no punches. And “I Got My Mind on You” is gritty garage rock with a 60s retro sound reminding me of R&B and The Beatles' version of “Twist and Shout.” And like they used to say on American Bandstand, “It’s got a good beat, you can dance to it.” If you want to have some fun listening to music, check out this single.
