Tijuana Panthers debut lp “Max Baker.” Each of the three members of the Tijuana Panthers are individually immensely talented musicians, but it’s the whole group which is really exciting. Chad, Phil, and Daniel collectively produce a sound that just rings true. There are warm notes of mid 60’s rock and roll that make you want to spend a barefoot summer on the pavement of Venice. There’s homage to the fuzzy punk sounds that were born from the American surf rock recreation of the 80s. Somehow Tijuana Panthers have made consonant music sound punk.
