Formed in 2005, Houston indie outfit Young Mammals’ kicked themselves into the local underground scene with the release of their Carrots LP in 2010, followed by a slew of 7-inches. New single “Speedboy” is a gutsy, lo-fi earworm. It’s infectious as hell: a kick-drum hammers away underneath buoyant, power-pop-infused chords come in waves that rise and recede, each one taller and more cogent than the last. It’s not quite punk, but it’s noisy enough to cut with a serrated edge, especially during the strident, electrifying outtro.

Young Mammals’ record Alto Seco is out October 7th on Odd Hours.
