Best Local Single of the Past 12 Months St. Louis 2009 - "Electric Babies"

Readers' Choice: "Champagne" (Cavo)

An adrenaline shot of garage-punk sleaze, "Electric Babies" is a single in the grand tradition of crackling 45 rpm vinyl. Recorded in Detroit with noted garage-blues producer Jim Diamond (the White Stripes, the Dirtbombs), the two-minute song explodes like a bottle rocket streaking upward. Vocalist/drummer Jason Potter's manic shrieks and surf-blues rhythms drive forward guitar riffs that rain down like a hailstorm in Hell. Sadly, Left Arm subsequently disbanded, so consider this shock to the system its fiery last will and testament.
