California Police State

On their acid rock masterpiece California Police State, Ventura, CA's Sexy Death Soda invoke a diesel-fueled, '70s-style sound and pull it off as well as any of the retro acts attempting to replicate that era. Blending a wide variety of influences from surfy pop to drug-addled art rock, they succeed at conquering all of them. The tunes, which have a bit of an ironic bent, have titles and sorts of themes which go along with the bands' stream-of-consciousness ramblings such as "November Reign," the title of which is a slight parody of Guns N' Roses' "November Rain," and the title song "California Police State," a breezy tribute to the Golden State partially inspired by some collage art from the Dead Kennedys' classic Fresh Fruit for Rotten Vegetables. The lyrics are hilarious gobbledy-gook about naked ladies, whiskey, and other such nonsense. In fact, every song on California Police State sounds like it should be blasting from a diner jukebox, though a few of these tunes might upset the customers.
