On first listen, the fuzz-drenched, echo-y, tambourine friendly tunes on the Alberta darlings' Spaced Out sound deceptively simple. But Ketamines run deep. One criticism of the early 2000s garage trash bumper crop is that under the standard heavy blanket of reverb, bands have a tendency to blend together. This is not the case with Ketamines. Modulations, sharp hooks and songs that reach farther than your average good time Charlies populate Spaced Out. These songs draw you back for different reasons. Spooky chord progressions, shout along choruses and an unstoppable summer jam ("Teenage Rebellion Time") ensure Ketamines' staying power.
