With a name like Meat Market, you’d expect this Oakland-based quartet to sound like the soundtrack to Saturday night in some douchey velvet-roped nightclub. You’d expect big thumping booty-bass and lascivious lyrics. You’d expect a fan-base of popped collars and bared midriffs. While the foursome does wield the power to pack in throngs of sweaty young people looking to dance, their sound bears little resemblance to the incessant thud of your standard club-banger. Instead, these four college-aged kids bust out a blend of surf guitar twang with garage-crafted power pop. Think The Ventures meets The Marked Men.
