Zombies Wake!

“songs that walk the line between garage punk, cow punk and country ballads defined by the band as suburban rock, western garage or music for aging punk rockers who discovered classic country sometime in the early ’90s.”-Bryant Liggett, The Durango Herald
NOTES
The third album from Durango, CO based Lawn Chair Kings features a raw trio sound with Chris DiPietro on drums along with founding members Erik Nordstrom (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Dan Leek (bass, vocals). Staying in the “western garage” tradition, the songs reflect country, rock, pop, and punk influences. Chris has since moved to Denver, but Lawn Chair Kings continue to provide catchy tunes and good-time performances to the Four Corners Region and beyond.

"It's pretty easy to get a feel for what the Lawn Chair Kings are all about from "Zombies," the opening cut on the Durango-based act's third release, Zombies Wake! While the band injects a fair amount of Midwest gritty rock à la the Replacements into the song's chorus, the verses have a bit more alt-country drawl. On the rest of the thirteen-track disc, the Kings clearly feel at home blending both worlds, sometimes favoring one over the other, as on the twangy "Getting' Pretty Good (at Feeling Pretty Bad Over You)," the cow-punky "Greasy Meal" and the country ballad "Smells Like Roses." Elsewhere, on "Local Dive" and "I Fell," they also show an affinity for the pop sensibilities of the Kinks." -Jon Solomon, Denver Westword, Dec 12, 2013
