If you’ve yet to really dug into the neo-garage rockers The Gories, there’s so much to explore. These Detroit-natives push hard, clanging rhythm into a snappy, modern time-stamp and keep the flame alive for bands like The Nerves.

“There but for the Grace of God Go I” is a thrumming disco cover, originally by Machine. This cover, and the up-tempo, feels like the precursor to so much great post-garage rock. Get the whole damn album Outta Here, and also check out I Know You Fine But How You Doin?
