Last year, the Melbourne band Civic released a two-song single — an original called “Radiant Eye” and a cover of the Creation’s Rushmore-soundtrack banger “Making Time” — that impressed the absolute hell out of me. Civic are a straight-up rip-snorting rock ‘n’ roll band, and they don’t really have a subgenre. They’ve got garage rock swagger, power-pop hooks, and punk ferocity. (They’ve also evidently got basement-punk recording budgets, but that’s not exactly a problem, is it?) The band’s sound is huge and basic and extremely gratifying. They just kick ass.
